Strong Lebanon affirms need for Central Bank Accounts' Audit: We will not give up on long years' struggle that produced law that corrects representation

24 Nov 2020

Lebanon - The Strong Lebanon parliamentary bloc expressed in a statement, after its periodic meeting under the chairmanship of MP Gebran Bassil, its aspiration to "discuss the message of His Excellency the President of the Republic at the House of Representatives next Friday with regard to forensic scrutiny."

The Bloc said "protecting the rights of the people is the most sacred of duties for the Council of Representatives", declaring its adherence to "the obligation to conduct audits on the accounts of the Central Bank," calling upon "the parliamentary blocs to determine their positions in Friday's session, so the necessary measures can be taken to start the audit process immediately, in implementation of the contract, and as a prelude to launching a comprehensive forensic audit in all public spending."

The bloc tackled the proposal to change the Parliamentary Elections Law, stressing that it "will not give up on the long years of struggle that have brought us to a law that corrects parliamentary representation. Any discussion into the matter will not be accepted on our part, except if an integrated solution is offered to develop the system and amend the constitution by completely establishing a civil state and adopting an expanded administrative and financial decentralization."
