Kassem: Prolonging discussion of electoral law to preserve certain leaderships is illogical

Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General, Sheikh Naim Kassem, considered that "the attempt to prolong discussions of the parliamentary elections law in order to preserve certain leaderships in the country is an illogical matter," proposing instead "to return to the relativity law based on 13 districts."

"We have repeatedly called for an impartial electoral law based two major pillars, namely ensuring wide representation and unifying standards between regions and communities for fairness and equity purposes," Kassem explained.

Speaking at a memorial ceremony held in the area of Jiyye on Sunday, Kassem stressed on his Party's priority in fighting the Israeli enemy, noting that "our combating of Takfiris is a branch of our fight against Israel, since they represent Israeli tools."

He stressed that "were it not for the Resistance's fighting against Takfiris in Syria and defending the eastern borders in the face of such terrorists, Lebanon would have been in complete disarray, and bombings would have included all regions and communities without exception, and we would have been in a complex situation of political, economic, social and security suffering."

"Our confrontation of Takfiris in Syria has safeguarded Lebanon, our people and our nation," Kassem underscored.
