Expatriates to Basil: We will vote against you massively, and you will not steal our votes.

After the authority’s team failure to postpone the parliamentary elections, scheduled for next May 15, the head of the Free Patriotic Movement, Representative Gebran Bassil, failed to find arguments and reasons, for deferring the parliamentary elections.

More than 80% of the expatriates want change, according to the new statistics that were conducted a week ago, and according to the expatriate sources, they are heading towards voting against the ruling team, led by Hezbollah and the Tayyar.

The expatriate sources add that “Basil’s attempt to dissuade us from voting or to distract our voices will not succeed, and we will vote massively against him and his era, which sold Lebanon to Iran.”

The sources also confirm to “Sawt Beirut International” website, that Bassil gave orders to his ambassadors to disperse the expatriates’ votes, in a clear attempt to thwart the electoral process abroad, but the expatriates insist on voting intensely this time, hoping for the desired change out of compassion for their families who suffer under economic burdens, as a result of governing system policies.

For its part, sources within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that they are following up on the matter and will not accept that the ambassadors become affiliated with political parties, and there are investigations and contacts taking place to gather evidence, and present it before the Lebanese public opinion at home and abroad.

The sources indicated to our website, that Bassil is not a foreign minister and he should stop using President Michel Aoun’s influence, to pressure the ambassadors.

It also revealed that decision’s storms were called in order to investigate the reality of what is happening with expatriates in the countries of emigration, amid a serious tone, that these countries would not allow the voices of expatriates to be harmed, while they were following the issue closely.
