Hajj Hassan: Absence of legislation will not lead to election of President

APRIL 28, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Minister of Industry, Hussein Hajj Hassan, said Tuesday that the lack of legislation in the shadow of the presidential vacancy would not lead to the election of a president of the republic.

The Minister who sponsored the launching of the “health days” in the Bekaa, said that blocking the legislative council would lead to additional political, economic and social damages.

In his words, the presidential issue is closely related to the agreement of the Lebanese parties around a candidate, noting that in the absence of such an agreement, his political party will be committed to MP Michel Aoun as the sole candidate.
