The Kataeb party on Tuesday slammed the ruling political class for the drastic situation Lebanon has reached today, saying that the country will never rise as long as this current authority remains in the governing and is controlled by external intrusion.
“This failed system has dragged Lebanon’s epidemiological reality to a catastrophic scenario unlike any of the other countries,” read a statement issued by the Kataeb Political Bureau after its weekly meeting.
“The situation the country has reached today is nothing but the result of many disappointed decisions taken by those in charge of the coronavirus file through irresponsible committees,” it said.
The political bureau called to end the neglection of the health sector, urging to speed up with the import of vaccines to start immunizing the health immunity against the epidemic.
“An immediate initiation of support and motivation of the medical and nursing staff should be carried out as well the payment of hospital dues to carry out their duties, compensation for doctors and nurses, an increase in the number of beds by taking advantage of the donations of field hospitals that have evaporated, and securing the necessary funds for lost oxygen vials from markets which have become over-priced,” it added.
The Kataeb stressed that the country’s problem remains firstly sovereign, deeming the mafia that is always contributing with the country’s corruption as a second problem.
