FPM Sources Blast 'Hariri's Performance'

W460

Free Patriotic Movement sources have criticized Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri over several files, including the government formation process, the Syria file and his stance on the Canada-Saudi Arabia row.

"There are several question marks over PM-desigante Saad Hariri's performance, procrastination and his endorsement of the conditions of Progressive Socialist Party chief ex-MP Walid Jumblat and the Lebanese Forces," the sources told al-Joumhouria newspaper in remarks published Tuesday.

"Hariri has committed mistakes that cannot be overlooked and ignored, seeing as in the Syrian file Hariri is a PM-designate who does not have the jurisdiction or the parliamentary majority to decide whether or not Lebanon will restore its relation with Syria," the sources said.

Commentint on Hariri's solidarity with Riyadh in its crisis with Canada, the sources said such a stance could be "politically costly for Lebanon."

"Hariri should not have acted unilaterally because it should be issued by the Council of Ministers, not by a PM-designate," the sources added.

Was Basil's visit to Moscow and his unilateral stances on the Syrian refugees coordinated and/or issued by the Council of Ministers and not by a care-taker Foreign Minister?

Hariri has only himself to blame. His decision to run in the elections on joint lists with the FPM in key districts, lost him many seats and gave the FPM a few extra ones. He must be rueing the day he trusted in Michel Aoun's promises as is Geagea.

Hariri and his party dug their own grave with that election law.

Mashallah the FPM's performances have been exemplary. the list below is exactly have they managed to do since assuming total power in Lebanon:

1. Criticize and blame others
2. Call Kizballah god the almighty
3. Appease Syria
4. Accuse others of corruption while they are in power
5. Provide Lebanon with 24hr electricity...
