Head of Free Patriotic Movement Jebran Bassil said Tuesday that even though the bloc “is not part of the new government,” the FPM will do what it can to help the government overcome the crisis.
He pointed out that “we were handed a country that is occupied, under (Syrian) tutelage and lacks sovereignty” and that “we are working to give it back its freedom and independence.”
“We were handed a destroyed, corrupted and bankrupt country, and we should free it of corruption, make its economy productive, and its finances profitable,” Bassil added.
He affirmed that “we should study ideas, projects and laws that help us get out of our ordeal” and that “we have the solutions, plans and laws, but unfortunately we alone do not have the ability to implement them.”
“Today we are not part of the government,” he said, “but we should help it to get out of these crises, whenever we can.”
He stressed that the most important way to help is by issuing reform laws in Parliament.
