The head of the Lebanese Free Patriotic Movement, Gebran Bassil, said that he “does not trust the prime minister-designate, Saad Hariri, alone on reform,” blaming him for the country’s economic and financial policy.
Bassil asked: “How can we trust the same person, with the same people who do not accept that any of them change, with the same policy of the nineties, and that he alone is good for the country?”
Regarding the distribution of ministerial portfolios, the head of the Free Patriotic Movement pointed out that “Hariri names ministers from the Sunni community, and it is known that he cannot name the Shiite ministers on behalf of Hezbollah and the Amal movement, nor the Druze ministers for the socialist, not even the minister of Marada or Tashnak.”
He added, “How can he be named on behalf of the President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, and the Christians?” He added, surprisingly, “What are our thinkers second-class citizens?”
