Free Patriotic Movement: A nightmare for Lebanon and the Lebanese!

Where can the Free Patriotic Movement take the country yet? Unfortunately, far beyond what we imagined on all levels. Let’s start with the electricity and the presentation made by Siemens International to the Ministry of Energy.

The offer is simple, in which the German company pledges to provide electricity to the Lebanese 24 hours a day, within a period not exceeding eighteen months, that is, within a year and a half. Although the financing is secured by the company, and it does not depend on the Lebanese state or its treasury, Energy Minister Walid Fayyad, a supporter of the Free Patriotic Movement, withdrew the offer from the agenda of the last session of the Council of Ministers. Why? For the simple reason that the Siemens project does not include the establishment of a factory in Selaata, which is the dearest demand to the heart of the head of the Free Patriotic Movement, Gebran Bassil.

In politics, the situation is no better. It is clear that Bassil and the President of the Republic do not want to form a new government, but rather they want to keep the current government, that is, to maintain the position of caretaker as well. Why? Also for a simple reason, so that the President of the Republic can stay in Baabda Palace after the end of his term on the 31st of October, under the pretext of the caretaker! This is what Basil said frankly in his last speech. So the FPM continues the series of Lebanon’s destruction, electrically, politically, economically and socially. When will this nightmare end?
