Kataeb Party leader Sami Gemayel on Tuesday, slammed the political authority's incapability to agree on a new electoral law to rule the upcoming parliamentary polls and accused it of 'tailoring a voting system to secure power gains.”
“We are only three weeks away from the end of the parliament's term, they are seeking a law that secures power gains,” said Gemayel in a press conference.
“Two week earlier, we started hearing about some constitutional amendments about the creation of senate. How can a political class that failed over a period of 8 years from approving a new electoral law succeed in creating a senate in just two week?” he asked.
“An electoral law is supposed to serve the Lebanese people and their interests, not that of politicians. Impudence has reached a steep level as some are openly proposing how to take over power in the country for the next four years,” added Gemayel.
