Senior Hizbullah official Sheikh Mohammed Yazbek called Friday for “a strong state” that can provide “security” and “real partnership.”

“The situations in the country are very sad and regrettable and failure to shoulder responsibility would give a chance to those who want to tamper with security, attack people's freedoms and plant explosives, in addition to encouraging corruption and obstruction in state institutions,” Yazbek, who is the head of Hizbullah's Juristic Council, said.

 

“Will politicians meet on September 28 after reaching an agreement on electing a president or will they venture further into the unknown as citizens pay the price?” the Hizbullah official asked.

“It's about time the country left intensive care into a strong state that can provide security, preserve sovereignty and enhance coexistence and real partnership,” Yazbek urged.

Hizbullah has recently showed solidarity with its main Christian ally the Free Patriotic Movement by boycotting a cabinet session that was held in the absence of FPM's ministers.

The FPM, which has the biggest Christian bloc in parliament, has suspended its participation in cabinet sessions and national dialogue meetings over accusations that other parties in the country are not respecting the National Pact.

The 1943 National Pact is an unwritten agreement that set the foundations of modern Lebanon as a multi-confessional state based on Christian-Muslim partnership.

Lebanon has been without a president since the term of Michel Suleiman ended in May 2014.
Al-Mustaqbal Movement leader ex-PM Saad Hariri, who is close to Saudi Arabia, launched an initiative in late 2015 to nominate Marada Movement chief MP Suleiman Franjieh for the presidency but his proposal was met with reservations from the country's main Christian parties as well as Hizbullah.

The supporters of Aoun's presidential bid argue that he is more eligible than Franjieh to become president due to the size of his parliamentary bloc and his bigger influence in the Christian community.
