Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nabih Berri, praised in an interview with “Future Web” the “contents of the speech delivered by Prime Minister Saad Hariri yesterday at the February 14 commemoration ceremony,” describing it as “moderate, good and understanding of the deputies’ words during the ministerial statement discussions.”
“The Parliament will give confidence to the government today or tomorrow at the latest, and I hope that the speech we have heard will be put into action,” Berri said.
He reiterated the “determination of the House of Representatives, after the completion of the confidence sessions, to start holding legislative and monitoring sessions monthly and periodically.”
“I was very pleased with the positions uttered by Prime Minister Hariri as he noted that the cabinet may be called to convene twice to thrice a week,” Berri added, underlining “the importance of what Hariri had addressed in his speech touching on the file of corruption.”
“In my opinion, the implementation of the laws is in itself an end to corruption in the country, especially since 39 laws are still pending in the council, awaiting implementation. I am certain that the implementation of these laws will put an end to 90% of the corruption situation,” the Speaker concluded.
