Grand Mufti Sheikh Mohammed Rashid Qabbani on Friday called on all lawmakers to “choose an electoral law that does not allow any party to impose its control over a certain region,” pleading to God to “destroy those who are destroying the homes of the Syrians.”
“We want a law that would ensure proper representation for the Lebanese, and let the slogan of the sought electoral law be 'proper elections for a proper representation', rather than for domination and extending the influence of a certain party. This is an advice that we give to our lawmakers,” said Qabbani.
Commenting on the issue of the new wage scale, the mufti said the new scale is a “legitimate right” for the people, but criticized “those who are demonstrating while the country is in dire need for calm.”
Turning to the conflict in neighboring Syria, Qabbani pleaded to God to “destroy those who are killing people and destroying their houses over their heads.”
