Bassil: Change started with new presidency, will culminate with new electoral law

Free Patriotic Movement Leader, Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Minister, Gebran Bassil, said on Wednesday that real change started with the election of a new president and the formation of a new cabinet, adding that these national achievements will be culminated with a new electoral law that grants all the Lebanese equal rights.

The Minister’s words came during an annual Christmas lunch held by the FPM’s Board of Licensed Topographers at Mhana Restaurant, Antelias.

“Change can only be attained through democracy and via the balloting boxes,” Bassil said, hoping to see real change happen in the impending parliamentary elections set in May 2017.
