Derian during Eid al-Fitr sermon: I warn of the dangers of refraining from participating in the elections

Grand Mufti of the Republic, Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian affirmed that “what happened in Tripoli did not happen for the first time, and the state, through its lack of concern for living security, contributed, intentionally or unintentionally, to what happened to the people.”

Mufti Derian, whose position came during Eid Al-Fitr sermon, indicated that hunger does not distinguish between religion, sects, and regions, saying: “Suffering from the aggravation of crises brings us together, and the national will unites us to change what we are in and get out of the abyss of collapse and failure to what we aspire to be a message state linked to friendship with our Arab brothers.”

The Mufti warned of the danger of abstaining from participating in the elections, warning against choosing the corrupt.

He pointed out that “the Lebanese are able to rebuild their country and restore their dilapidated institutions based on the selection of members of Parliament.”
