Geagea Says New Govt. Must Preserve Sovereignty, Fight Corruption


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea announced Tuesday that the new government should "preserve sovereignty and freedom" and "fight corruption."

Wishing prosperity for Lebanon in a message marking the Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha, Geagea said the new government should "reflect the people's will and their aspirations in terms of preserving sovereignty and freedom and relaunching the process of rebuilding state institutions through running them properly and fighting the rampant corruption in them."

Geagea also hoped the Arab region will witness "peace and safety" and "the end of the bloody crises that we are witnessing today."

This guy is hilarious. He is no different from any other Lebanese Politician quick to say the right thing but does nothing. Basically do what I say not as I do...

they are all a bunch of criminals and thieves. How can Aoun have so much money he left Lebanon in his PJs. I am hoping someone can explain this? The lebanes people are idiots they are following criminals and anytime they say something religion is brought up to shut them up. Check this out people.

Its simple Canadaleb, every single leader in Lebanon is driven by his or her religious group to do the best for their creed, in parallel they line their pockets with silver and influence. Why? because the Lebanese love to idolize their leaders and place them above the law of the land without exception. We have to stop blaming leadership but the common person who puts them in power....
