National Struggle Front
leader MP Walid Jumblatt said on Monday “what we are witnessing today with
regards to the electoral law, particularly the proportionality proposal, is
nothing more than biddings aiming at muzzling other people’s voices which might
not converge on all points with the dominating voice”.
Jumblatt added that the
proportionality system will widen the internal rift and will contribute, in a
way or another, to bring back the era of tutelage.
In his weekly statement to Al
Anbaa newspaper, Jumblatt asked “isn’t it better if some absurd forces of the
majority humble themselves in order to approach issues with realism instead of
daily bidding fairs that do not spare the president and taxes him with having reached
his position by consensus? Is this attack based on the fact that he opposed the
handover of Syrian refugees or activists to spare them execution or liquidation
in their countries or is it aimed at preventing him from expressing his opinion
in judicial and administrative appointments?
Jumblatt said that sooner or
later, tyrants will fall, adding “countries and parties supporting them will regret
it later on; the Syrian revolution will triumph eventually”.
