Resigned Kataeb lawmaker Elias Hankache on Friday stressed that the agitation carried out by some of the authority’s parties regarding the powers of Sunnis and the rights of Christians does not concern the party, saying that such act comes within the framework of settling accounts.
“The current ruling authority and the lawmakers who have not resigned from the Parliament after the Beirut port blast are living on another planet,” Hankache said in an interview with Lebanonon.
“They are fighting over shares and quotas while the country is drowning,” he added.
Hankache affirmed that the parliamentary elections will take place no matter what, saying that there is enough popular pressure if people felt that the people in the power will try to evade this settlement.
“There is a new popular mood, a new alignment, and a liberation from positions and associations with the parties that took adequate opportunities,” he pointed out, stressing that the revolution will be reflected in the ballot boxes, even if the elections process do not lie in the authority’s best interest.
The resigned lawmaker said that the party is exerting its utmost efforts so as to unite the fronts of the change forces, deeming it as the only opportunity for change.
