Franjieh Slams FPM 'Dictatorial' Approach, Likens Bassil to Ghazi Kanaan

Marada Movement chief MP Suleiman Franjieh lashed out Thursday at the Free Patriotic Movement and compared its leader Jebran Bassil to Ghazi Kanaan, the long-time head of Syria's security apparatus in Lebanon.

“I reiterate that our project won through President Michel Aoun's election, and in the strategic issues we have triumphed with President Aoun,” Franjieh said in an interview with LBCI television.

He however blasted Bassil, who is Aoun's son-in-law and his successor as FPM chief.

“Bassil declared a war of elimination against us four days after President Aoun's election and we faced a coordination between the FPM and the Lebanese Forces against us,” Franjieh added.

“Bassil has surpassed Ghazi Kanaan in his approach towards state institutions,” the Marada leader decried.

Asked about the growing spat between Aoun and Speaker Nabih Berri, Franjieh accused the FPM and the president's aides of deliberately seeking a “problem” with Berri ahead of the May parliamentary elections.

“They want a problem to rally Christians in the elections,” the Marada chief charged.

They are no different than others who will implode in time and showing how strong their bond of allegiance is with each other. Kinaan probably graced Franjiyis household many a time back in the day but now even Syrians speak badly of him.
