The Director-General of the Presidency of the Republic, Dr. Antoine Choucair, issued the following statement:
“During the past two days, media outlets published interviews and statements issued by former Public Relations Advisor to His Excellency, the President of the Republic, Mr. Antoine Haddad, in which he addressed several issues, including the topic of demarcation of southern maritime borders and other related issues, and I was mentioned more than once in his words on this subject.
Concerning this matter, I am interested in emphasizing that Mr. Haddad deliberately, during his time at the Presidency of the Republic and his dealing with the file of maritime border demarcation, requested unconstitutional and illegal issues and was pressuring to proceed with them and insisting on them, which is contrary to all rules and regulations in force. This led me to suggest rejecting the violation of laws and the Constitution, especially since the directions and decisions of the President were not in harmony with what Mr. Haddad was requesting, due to illegal and unconstitutional matters.
Clarification was required
