Head of the “Democratic Gathering”, MP Taymour Jumblatt, underlined Saturday the “importance of addressing the electricity file,” considering “the cabinet’s initial approval of reform is insufficient, as there must be a real, practical, long-awaited reform plan within a specific timetable that begins with the formation of the regulatory body, and not by repeating previous plans in new forms.”
His words came during his meetings today with popular delegations who visited him at Al-Mukhtara Palace, in the presence of Deputies Akram Chehayeb, Faisal Al-Sayegh and Hadi Abou Al-Hassan, where talks centered on their daily-living conditions and demands.
During his meeting with a delegation of contractual trainers, Jumblatt discussed the issue of the Lebanese University and its academic and national role in favor of the Lebanese youth and their educational future.
The MP stressed herein that the Lebanese University “should be given the necessary attention and priority in tackling its financial crisis like other institutions resulting from the current difficult conditions,” and “all its dossiers be addressed away from politicization and sectarian calculations.”
Listening to the demands of the University’s trainers, Jumblatt commissioned MP Chehayeb to follow-up on their case with Prime Minister Najib Mikati and Minister of Education Abbas Al-Halabi, including resolving the issue of their reconciliation contracts and renewals.
