Roads leading to canceling elections have been completely blocked

A few hours before the conclusion of the candidacy scene for the parliamentary elections scheduled for May 15, the electoral machines are preparing to work at full capacity.

What has struck in the last few hours is the treachery, sectarian and political campaigns that lack clear and serious programs. Rather, these campaigns seek to polarize the electorate by making vague promises to improve their living, social, and political circumstances in the face of unprecedented economic and financial conditions.

A political source following the electoral process confirmed to Sawt Beirut International that all recent happenings indicate that there is no longer any way to postpone this entitlement, despite the fact that there was a serious intention by the political system to push for this postponement.

According to the source, until the last attempts to announce that the financial situation did not allow the elections to take place, it failed after it was confirmed that the funds necessary for the electoral process had been disbursed, and that it had raised the issue of “Megacenter” despite its certain knowledge that it was impossible to adopt it in these elections due to the lack of preparations.

The sources wink at the “Free Patriotic Movement” in particular, which all data indicates that it will lose a good number of its seats in Parliament, and this matter became clear through the high-ceilinged speech of its head, Deputy Gebran Bassil, last Sunday, when he proceeded to “reject the past.” During his speech, Bassil strived to show himself as if he is outside this system that has brought Lebanon and its people to the dire social situation they have reached.

According to the sources, so far, all facts indicate that all roads leading to elections have been completely blocked in the face of the majority of the political system seeking to do so, and the matter is now in the hands of the voters, who must vote heavily in order to produce a new political class that emulates their aspirations and hopes.

In a nutshell, every citizen has the right to vote, and it is not permissible for him to fail to fulfill his national duty. Either his choice is correct for the desired change and puts the country on the path to rise, reform, and prosperity, or it is incorrect for the current reality and continues the country’s decline and decline into the unknown.
