Raad Stresses Need for Security: We Will Not Turn the Tables on Anyone

Head of Hizbullah's Loyalty to the Resistance bloc MP Mohammed Raad highlighted on Sunday the need for stability and security in Lebanon, as well as the party's keenness to end the vacuum in the presidency, reported the National News Agency.

He said: “We do not want to turn the table against anyone in Lebanon.”

“We want stability, security, civil peace, and ending the vacuum in a manner that achieves the people's expectations,” he declared during the funeral of a Hizbullah fighter in the southern city of al-Nabatiyeh.

“We seek revitalizing constitutional institutions and the economy,” he continued.

“We want to achieve all this through preserving our sovereignty and national will. This demands loyal and honest efforts with the loyal and honest sides” in the country, remarked Raad.

Lebanon has been without a president since May 2014 since the term of Michel Suleiman ended without the election of a successor.

Ongoing disputes between the rival March 8 and 14 camps have thwarted the polls.

Hizbullah announced earlier this year that its lawmakers will boycott electoral sessions unless it has guarantees that its candidate Free Patriotic Movement founder MP Michel Aoun will be elected head of state.
