Berri Says Voting a 'National Duty', Urges Massive Turnoutإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Speaker Nabih Berri stressed Tuesday that voting is a “national duty,” urging a massive turnout in the May parliamentary elections.
“The electoral juncture must be turned into a referendum on south Lebanon's constant principles of unity and real coexistence,” Berri told a delegation of mukhtars, or village heads, who represent the Tyre district.
“Mukhtars have a central role in urging voters to up the voting turnout in the various districts, especially in the South,” the Speaker added.
“Failure to take part in the electoral process is failure to perform a national duty and an evasion of responsibility,” Berri went on to say.
