Baroud: PM Diab’s speech is emotional and unconstitutional

Former Minister Ziad Baroud said during a television interview that Caretaker Prime Minister Hassan Diab’s speech today is political and not constitutional, it is also emotional and related to the people’s demands and feelings.”

Baroud added: “There is nothing in the constitution called ‘stop performing duties’, and when the government resigns, it becomes a caretaker government only, and if the government will stop performing its duties and conducting business, it will be disrupting the citizen’s affairs and matters.”

Baroud said that in 1994, martyr Rafik Hariri decided to stop performing his duties as a Prime Minister, but is noteworthy to say that there is a difference between a minister who stops performing his duties and a prime minister.
