The Strong Lebanon parliamentary bloc filed Wednesday an appeal against the electoral law’s amendment before the Constitutional Council.
The bloc’s MP Alain Aoun said the Constitutional Council will take a decision concerning the appeal within a month. “We respect the Council’s decision,” he added.
Aoun said that his bloc has presented to the Constitutional Council the reasons that necessitate repealing the electoral law’s amendments.
Free Patriotic Movement head Jebran Bassil said Tuesday that his bloc is keen on holding the elections on time and that the appeal is “against the amendments” and not against the entire electoral law.
He stressed that the appeal “will not affect the administrative procedures for the elections’ preparations.”
