Qassem: Whoever Thinks Govt. Posts Can Make Him President is Delusional

W460

Political leaders who think that their “posts in the government” would make them presidents in the future are “delusional,” Hizbullah deputy chief Sheikh Naim Qassem has announced.

“If some think that linking the delay of the new government to foreign forces or foreign crises may lead to a solution, we tell them that it only leads to further obstruction,” Qassem said.

“And if some are linking the formation of the government to the presidency and thinking that their posts in the government would pave the way for them to become presidents after the end of the current president's term then they are delusional,” Qassem added.

He noted that “the presidency in Lebanon has never been linked to the formation of the government.”

“Prior to the election of any president, local, regional and international interventions would always take place, and sometimes an unexpected solution happens..., therefore the presidency has a separate course... so do not waste time on dreams that cannot be achieved through the government,” Hizbullah number two added.

Both the Free Patriotic Movement and the Lebanese Forces, the country's biggest two Christian parties, are wrangling over shares in the new government. Accordingly, Qassem's remarks can be interpreted as a message to both FPM chief MP Jebran Bassil and LF leader Samir Geagea.

“Prior to the election of any president, local, regional and international interventions would always take place, and sometimes an unexpected solution happens..., therefore the presidency has a separate course..." Hizbullah number two added.

But didn't the FPM and Hezbollah say that aoun was the first 'made in Lebanon' president?

As much as I a shite, despise this Hizb and everything it stands for, the guy the feeling you in plain arabic what everyone in Lebanon, in th region already knows that the Hizb is the defect ruler of Lebanon. He's practically telling Bassile and others, we (Hizb) who decide who becomes President. Why would anyone want to become President of this failed Republic is beyond me. The post is just ceremonial and all powers were stripped after Taif.
