NNA – We wonder if our presence in the Parliament is still useful, or if it’s time to shorten the term of the House and hold early elections, MP Gebran Bassil told a Parliament session at the UNESCO Palace on Friday.
“Everything that is going on is the result of vexatious politics, especially in terms of the electricity dossier,” the head of the Free Patriotic Movement said.
“Central bank governor, Riad Salameh, made a unilateral decision. We are days away from an explosion due to the fuel crisis,” he added.
For his part, Speaker Berri rejected Bassil’s threats of stepping down, saying: “No one can threaten with resignations.”
He also called for declaring a state of healthcare emergence to allow hospitals to import heir medical and pharmaceutical needs, as well as for curbing medicine cartels.
