NNA – President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, received on Tuesday afternoon at Baabda Palace Deputy Prime Minister, Public Health Minister, Ghassan Hasbani, and Information Minister Melhem Riachy, dispatched by Lebanese Forces (LF) leader Samir Geagea.
Ministers Hasbani and Riachy relayed to President Aoun the LF`s rejection of the extension of the Parliament`s mandate without the adoption of a new vote law that guarantees equity to a great extent.
Both Ministers also voiced the LF`s support for any position to be adopted by the President in this regard.
Speaking on emerging, Hasbani said that they tackled latest developments with respect to the poll law issue, voicing rejection of Parliament mandate extension for any reason before reaching a new election law.
Hasbani voiced the Lebanese Forces` keenness on the issue of seeking solutions that would secure equity through acceptable formulas which would significantly take into account this principle.
Hasbani stressed the need for a swift endorsement of a new vote law, hoping that the concerned ministerial committee would realize a new election draft law which would secure proper representation.
