Since the election campaigns began, the head of the Free Patriotic Movement, MP Gebran Bassil, decided not to pay money for electoral ads, and preferred to recruit representatives and famous people to market the movement’s campaign, and we had previously mentioned this issue via “Sawt Beirut International” website.
To this, sources monitoring the electoral campaigns confirmed that Bassil failed to market his electoral campaign, and his bet on the representatives was wrong, as he preferred not to pay the money for advertisements, and used this pretext as a bulwark to shoot at his opponents.
The monitoring sources added to our website, that some representatives received money and did not carry out the task, which forced Bassil to resort to clerics to market the electoral campaigns.
The sources stress that the Tayyar’s electoral campaign is devoid of projects and programs, and is based only on digging up the past graves of opponents, insults and sectarian incitement, even the rest of the candidates in the movement, misrepresented their rhetoric from the electoral programs and replaced them with talk about the movement’s failed achievements that plunged Lebanon into economic mud.
they confirm that the Tayyar spent large sums of money, but in an evasive manner, in order not to raise suspicions about it, by means of diesel fuel and food vouchers, and it has put brokers at the doors of hospitals to check the identity of patients and to which party they belong, in order to provide aid and enter with the patient’s family in a bazaar process,” we will pay a bill for you Hospitalization versus electoral votes.”
There are also generator owners who discount generator bills, in exchange for identity reservations, and all of these deals are outside the law of electoral process. Exploiting citizens’ economic and social distress in exchange for votes is against the law, but the election supervisory body, is absent.
