“Upcoming Parliamentary Elections are crucial, and some candidates are obstructionist tools so that we don’t get a majority,” says Geagea

The Head of the “Lebanese Forces” party, Samir Geagea stressed that “the upcoming parliamentary elections are crucial, and each of us should not get tired of convincing voters about the importance of their voices and right choices, meaning that his vote in the ballot box will determine the results of the elections.”

“This concept has become known to many, and from here the importance of diligent work in this field to raise awareness about this concept, which if correctly applied, we will win the battle, especially since the game has become known that elections determine the country’s fate.”

These positions were launched by Geagea during his participation in an electoral workshop for the Beirut Coordinator in the “Forces” through “Zoom” platform, organized in “Le Garbiel” in Ashrafieh, attended by the “Forces” candidate for the Orthodox seat in Beirut’s first constituency, former Deputy Prime Minister Ghassan Hasbani, Assistant Secretary-General Wissam Raji, Beirut Coordinator Saeed Hdeifeh, responsible for the electoral system, Nadim Yazbek, among other members from the party.

Geagea said: “Some people think that these elections will not change anything, and others are affected by the electoral money that ends after the elections or by providing services that are essentially one of their rights that the state must secure. Everyone notices that the rest of the parties are either sluggish or completely absent, with the exception of the “Lebanese Forces” party and some independent groups that take some steps.”

Geagea said that “what we have reached in crises at all levels came as a result of the citizens’ votes in the 2018 elections, hence the necessity of motivating them to participate in the electoral process and take right choices,” explaining that “some candidates and groups, even though they are good, are tools of obstruction in order not to gain a parliamentary majority, and this obstruction will worsen in all regions until the date of the parliamentary elections.”
