The Lebanese news outlet "Naharnet" reports today that Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea has called for “grabbing the parliamentary majority” in the upcoming elections to “prevent Hezbollah from controlling the formation of governments.”
“If they want to make troubles, let them make troubles. A clear political confrontation is necessary,” Geagea added, in an interview with Annahar newspaper published Wednesday.
Labeling the electoral battle as “salvation,” the LF leader said he is counting on the electoral juncture.
“We must start from the point of building the state and it is necessary to work as statesmen and to form a government that would take serious decisions,” Geagea added.
Commenting on the Tayyouneh-Ain al-Remmaneh incidents, the LF leader reiterated that his party “does not have a military organization.”
“Hezbollah tried to hold the LF responsible for the Ain al-Remmaneh incidents in a bid to isolate it and strike the last truly resistant position in Lebanon but it achieved the opposite,” Geagea went on to say.
