The head of the Progressive Socialist Party, Walid Jumblatt, made two visits to meet with references from the Unitarian Druze sect and their sheikhs to the Qatalib retreat in the town of Baadran.
Jumblatt indicated that “these meetings are continuing with the sheikhs, especially in the difficult circumstances we are going through, which seem to be prolonged to the most difficult, as the continuous bleeding of the state sectors and their components and the gradual decline of the economic and social situation, in addition to the suffering of hospitals and the health sector in general, and the shortage in fuel, especially diesel for generators, in the absence of electricity, and this is our main concern today in the disaster that has reached us alongside social solidarity
He added, “The resigned government could have taken measures that would limit what we have reached and address the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank at least, but waiting for the formation of a new cabinet, which requires a concession from the two parties to reach the goal and take the required measures. We have to fortify ourselves in this diverse region, and the priority should be social and economic steadfastness and civil solidarity.”
Jumblatt reiterated “the importance of solidarity between all the people to pass the difficult stage we are going through, look to the future and think about development, steadfastness and cooperation at all levels, and through this communication with references and actors and all spiritual, political, social and civil segments, we look forward to what preserves our unity and enhances our steadfastness.”
