Majdalani: Cabinet resignation depletes Lebanon off its Constitutional Institutions

FEBRUARY 22, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Future Parliamentarian Bloc, Deputy Atef Majdalni, underscored on Sunday, the significance of current cabinet role since any resignation tendered now would deplete Lebanon off all Constitutional Institutions and probably lead to a constitutive congress.

Majdalni elucidated his position during an interview on Voice of Lebanon radio station talkshow when he urged all constituent protagonists to elect a new president in the interest of the country as a whole.

Majdalani ranked yesterday’s accusations leveled at Hizbullah by Ashraf Rifi in which he said that the party was directly implicated in the assassination of Rafic Hariri, as tantamount to a political accusation.

The ongoing Hezbollah-Future dialogue may not only reduce sectarian tensions in the country but also prompt party’s lifting of its boycott of the presidential election sessions, the MP concluded.
