Jreissati Defends 'Presidential Palace' Over Poll Meddling Accusationsإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Justice Minister Salim Jreissati on Tuesday dubbed reports accusing President Michel Aoun of interfering in the country's upcoming parliamentary elections as false.
Jreissati described as “dishonest” those who said Aoun was meddling in the polls.
“Those who accuse the presidency of interfering in the polls lack objectivity and honesty, because the proportional electoral system helps determine the real magnitude of the various political parties, without neglecting the alliances which in the end flow into the ballot count,” he said.
“The (presidential) Palace and its President are eagerly waiting for this entitlement with passion for true democracy,” he concluded.
