Shiite Duo to Boycott Cabinet until 'Root Cause is Addressed'


Development and Liberation bloc’s MP Qassem Hashem said that the Shiite duo is still holding the same position concerning boycotting the Cabinet sessions.

“The reasons that resulted in freezing the sessions must be resolved first,” Hashem said in a televised interview.

“We have said clearly that it is necessary to return to the constitutional and legal principles in the Beirut port blast investigation,” he added.

Hashem stressed that the presidents and ministers must be investigated by the Higher Council for the Trial of Presidents and Ministers, “as the Constitution says.”

He revealed that forming an accusation committee was a main item on the agenda of one of the parliamentary sessions, but the quorum was not reached. Hashem added that “the Free Patriotic Movement "was the first bloc that did not attend that session."

Hashem considered that the FPM is ready to "exploit any cause to achieve populism and to secure a political quorum for the elections."

Do they realize that they are the root cause of the problem? As I have mentioned previously my hometown is flooded with supporters of these 2. I do not subscribe to their ideology, but who I am going to convince. They have completely brainwashed the youth in my town.

Root cause is their greed and incompetence. They just don't want to deal with any consequences.
