LOYALTY TO RESISTANCE: NEW ELECTION LAW QUALITATIVE STEP TOWARD CORRECTING REPRESENTATION

The "Loyalty to the Resistance" parliamentary bloc held its periodic meeting at its headquarters in Haret Hreik, under the chairmanship of MP Mohammad Raad and in the presence of bloc members.

The bloc discussed a number of issues and concerns related to the internal scene and developments in the region, and concluded the following:

"The bloc welcomes the adoption of the new electoral law, and deems it a saving step that protected Lebanon from the dangers of vacuum and moved the country towards a new stage in political life, in which different forces and movements compete to achieve the Lebanese people's aspirations," according to the bloc statement.

"The new electoral law represents a qualitative step forward in the process of correcting and developing the effectiveness of popular representation," the statement read.

The bloc affirms to the government the need to give utmost attention to the vital services sectors that serve the citizens, and called for transparency in undertakings, out of keenness on public interests, and to prevent monopolies.

"The current internal political climate should strengthen the efforts of the security and military services to control security and stabilize the situation in various regions, through intensified prosecution of criminals, (...) as well as by tightening the ring around terrorists, both in Arsal mountains or around their sleeper cells in other areas," the statement went on.

"The rapid developments in Syria and Iraq point to a significant decline in the Takfiri terrorist project and its groups, which would have a positive effect on Lebanon," Loyalty MPs concluded.
