Head of the Progressive Socialist Party Walid Jumblat lauded the Constitutional Council’s ruling, saying that it is a failure for the Free Patriotic Movement.
“The FPM has failed, especially in its hope to restrict the voting of expatriates,” Jumblat said in a press interview.
“This is the most important achievement,” he added.
Jumblat praised the Constitutional Council’s judges, saying they were “independent and impartial, far from any pressure and political interference.”
The Constitutional Council’s failed Tuesday to issue a ruling on an appeal filed by the FPM against the electoral law’s amendments.
The amendments bring forward the date of the elections and suspend the introduction of six seats dedicated for expats.
