"There is one law running its legislative course, which is the Orthodox law, although we rather have Lebanon be based on proportionality and one constituency," Fadlallah stressed.

"We bluntly and confidently say that these attempts are delusional; they cannot take the country 60 years back in time," Fadlallah noted.
"Our policy towards security challenges is to let the government avoid any problem; it is responsible for security, the Army, and the security forces," he accentuated.
