Progressive Socialist Party leader, Walid Jumblatt, said in a tweet on Tuesday that the statement issued by the Presidency of the republic in response to the remarks of the Druze Mashyakhat al-Aql was unconvincing.
"The Presidency's statement on the invitation of a second sheikh besides Sheikh Naeem Hassan -- the legitimate representative of Druze -- is not convincing," Jumblatt tweeted.
He added that the statement was more of an attempt to "pay prior bills" and to fawn on the Syrian regime and its allies.
"I grieve over what is left of this strong tenure," he said.
