Fayyad Blames Mustaqbal for Election Law Impasse

Loyalty to the Resistance bloc MP Ali Fayyad blamed al-Mustaqbal Movement for impeding an agreement on a new electoral law, the state-run National News Agency reported on Monday.

The Hizbullah MP said: “Neither the AMAL movement nor the Free Patriotic Movement or Hizbullah are responsible for the impasse of an electoral law,” as he blamed Mustaqbal.

“Although we believe in proportional representation, but we have always been willing to listen, debate and hold constructive interaction in the hope of reaching a common perception that provides just and effective representation,” he said.

Furthermore, Fayyad reiterated the need for dialogue between Lebanese factions to be capable of addressing controversial issues.
