November 11, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) “Lebanese Forces” Leader Samir Geagea said that national partnership comes above any other calculation, noting that the united national spirit and principles scored triumph today.

“I congratulate the Lebanese people on today’s developments.. This how the efficient democratic action should be,” Geagea said on Wednesday during a press conference over tomorrow’s legislative session.

He also pointed out that former Prime Minister Saad Hariri has rescued the situation through an agreement between the LF and Future Movement, saying that the Movement shall not attend any further legislative session (other than tomorrow’s) if the the electoral law was not included on the agenda items.

“As such, we would have secured a parliamentary majority to reach a new electoral law,” Geagea remarked, hailing the cooperation that existed between the Free Patriotic Movement and the Lebanese Forces.

“We did not harbor since the beginning any problem with financial topics but rather with the issue of the electoral and nationality draft laws,” said Geagea.
