MP Farid Boustany stressed today on the “rejection of any internal or external political pressure or interference in the probe dossier into the Beirut port explosion,” cautioning against “negative repercussions in the port case if Judge Al-Bitar steps down.”
He added: “Construction of the port is urgent and vital, and we must restructure it in a modern way and with international specifications, unlike its previous condition.”
Speaking in an interview with “Voice of All Lebanon” Radio Station this morning, the MP said that “if McKenzie’s plan had been implemented at the beginning of President Aoun’s term, we would not have reached our current situation,” adding that “we cannot implement a full rescue plan at this stage because the lifespan of this government is short.”
“Prime Minister Najib Mikati inherited successive crises, from the Corona pandemic to a financial and economic collapse, therefore some time is required…Livelihood matters will be resolved soon, but the major issues may remain until the next year,” he indicated, considering herein that “had Hassan Diab’s government been given the opportunity, it would have succeeded because it included patriotic ministers and qualified people.”
The MP also called for “solving the crisis of the Syrian displaced citizens the soonest possible, as they are receiving international aid to return to their country and will continue to do so after their return, which would relieve our treasury of material losses.”
Over the upcoming parliamentary elections, MP Boustany emphasized “the rejection of the law that abolishes the voting of expatriates” stressing on “holding the elections in March, as fasting or all sects is similar.
