“Loyalty to the Resistance” bloc categorically underlined the dire need to reach a new vote law before the expiration of the Parliament’s term, beseeching all political sides to continue discussions with an open mindset over a final accord in this regard.
The parliamentary bloc’s fresh stance on Thursday came in a statement in the wake of its periodic meeting, presided over by MP Mohammed Raad.
The bloc tackled most recent developments in Lebanon and the broader region.
“Loyalty to the Resistance” bloc said it is closely following up on the outcome of debate over the long simmering election law, whereby it considered the approval of full proportionality voting system by the various political sides as a “good indicator”, which necessitates the completion of discussions over issues related to the number of constituencies and their sizes, as well as restraints to secure equity and correct representation.
Turning to Lebanon’s Liberation and Resistance Day, the bloc congratulated all the Lebanese and liberals across the region and the world on this gracious Day, thanks to the ‘army, people and resistance’ equation which managed to restore and liberate the lands from the Israeli enemy occupation, thus accomplishing the historical triumph on 25 May, 2000.
The bloc paid tribute to all the sacrifices of the resistance fighters, martyrs, the wounded and their families, vowing to preserve their achievements and fulfill the longstanding aspirations of the Lebanese people and their legitimate cause.
