Qassem: Hizbullah wants national unity govt., has no plans to change system
Hizbullah deputy chief Sheikh Naim Qassem has announced that his party wants a “national unity” government to be formed after the upcoming parliamentary elections.
“Our project is partnership with everyone and a national unity government,” Qassem said in an interview with Hizbullah’s al-Nour radio station.
“We don’t have any plan to change the (political) system and we don’t propose any modifications. As for those who have changes that they consider to be appropriate, there are legal mechanisms for that,” Hizbullah’s number two added.
Commenting on the latest return of the Saudi and Gulf ambassadors to Lebanon, Qassem said the envoys who returned “realized that their absence would not put pressure on Hizbullah but would rather deprive them of the possibility of” making use of their presence in the country.
