Fadel meets Press Syndicate head, says Parliament extension distorted democratic system

June 2, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Press Syndicate Head, Aouni Kaaki, met on Tuesday with MP Robert Fadel, who briefed him on the general situation amidst the one-year-old presidential void.

“Extending the House of Parliament’s mandate has distorted our democratic system,” Fadel said in the wake of the meeting, calling on both sides of the Lebanese divide to stop “political wagering at the people’s expense.”

“The only two solutions to the presidential vacuum crisis are either to wait for the international community for a regional deal that will sure come at our expense, or to seek a Lebanese solution to the presidential deadline,” he added.
