"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Bassil Slams Those who 'Reject Vote on Electoral Law' and 'Accept Vote on Extension'- Naharnet

Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil on Tuesday criticized political parties who have rejected a cabinet vote on a new electoral law “although they have accepted to vote for illegitimate extension” in parliament.
“No to extension, no to vacuum and no to the 1960 law, and yes to a new law conforming to the National Pact,” Bassil said after the weekly meeting of the Change and Reform bloc.
“We are not clinging to any law and we are open to several laws, topped by the Orthodox Gathering law,” he added.
The FPM chief said the Lebanese are obliged to “reach a new law that conforms to the National Pact and a law that ensures correct representation to all Lebanese people.”
