The head of Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc, MP Mohammed Raad, said Thursday that his party wants a new Lebanese president who would not “stab the resistance in its back.”
“Let us elect a president. If we want him to protect national sovereignty and preserve his constitutional oath and the interest of the Lebanese, let us agree on a president who would not be a confrontational president,” Raad urged.
“We want a president who would not challenge anyone. We want him to know the value of martyrs and the importance of the resistance in preserving Lebanon’s sovereignty and protecting it. His decision must be sovereign and he must not bow to pressures to stab the resistance in its back,” the lawmaker said.
