From the “Free France”, as described by the head of the “Free Patriotic Movement,” Gebran Bassil launched a series of positions in which expressions of praise were repeated for what the French administration had done, through the French judge in charge of investigating the money and property of the Governor of the Central Bank of Lebanon, Riad Salameh.
In Europe, it is necessary to express gratitude to the Macronist administration of France for the partial victory achieved by the movement in its endeavor to overthrow the governor of the Central Bank, Riad Salameh.
No matter how hard Bassil tries to fix his previous positions and restore his previous proposals in terms of fighting corruption, preserving Christian rights, and his impossible exoneration from the “Hezbollah” system, and his final words from the French capital about his refusal to accept a president “from the system – a president whose history, path, and future are with corruption and against reform., he will always contradict the facts that he was a partner with the system he stated for more than ten years.
Bassil’s positions turned into losing bets that he started against “Hezbollah”, but they did not bear fruit. He tried so hard to restore lost confidence with the Gulf, led by Saudi Arabia, in an effort to enter into an equation that cannot be an influencing factor in a confrontation arena between major players.
Therefore, and based on these facts, there is nothing left for the head of the movement except to duel with files that affect the Lebanese in general and are linked to their funds in the banks by aiming at governance and the lack of inclusiveness of accountability.
In conclusion, the source believes that the presidential options have become narrow and do not suggest breakthroughs, despite the deadline set by the Speaker of the Parliament, because of the military and security developments in the vicinity and Hezbollah’s attempt to remind of its military strength through the recent maneuver to not allow it to be bypassed in any settlement that may take place in the region.
