Bassil: The appointment of a resigned government as a first-class employee without the relevant minister is a criminal offense and a violation of the Taif Constitution
8/02/2024
(See translation in Arabic section)
Sydney - Middle East Times Int’l: The head of the Free Patriotic Movement, MP Gebran Bassil, said in a statement that “February 8, 2024 is the day on which a resigned government deviated from the Taif Constitution,” and said: “Whoever suggested to the resigned government to appoint a first-class employee without the relevant minister is... He has usurped the constitutional authority of the Minister of Defense in accordance with Article 66 of the Constitution, and this is a criminal offense punishable by imprisonment for a period of no less than seven years in accordance with Article 306 of the Penal Code. He is also responsible for his criminal actions before the Supreme Council for the Trial of Presidents and Ministers in accordance with Articles 70 and 71 of the Constitution. ".
He added: “Let us see if there are at least 26 representatives, especially those demanding change and the rule of law, who are prepared to file an indictment against him according to a petition submitted to the Parliament in accordance with Law 1990/13.”
He continued: "It is also self-evident that an appeal would be submitted before the State Shura Council with such a decision and such a decree issued without the signature of the concerned minister. It is natural for the appeal to be accepted and the implementation of the decision to be immediately suspended and cancelled. Otherwise, what is the meaning of having a constitution, a law, and a state Shura Council?"
He said: “The prime minister who presented the proposal slaughtered Taif, and the participating ministers announced his death today, and everyone who covered this process with implicit acceptance or silence is an accomplice in the crime. And to the religious authorities and sovereign parties that demand every day the election of a free and sovereign president, we tell them where You are among these headlines, when you, with your previous consent, your hidden participation, and your blatant silence, led this resigned government to commit such an atrocity in the absence of the President of the Republic, and how will you demand from today those in charge of this government, whom you accuse of obstruction, to elect the president while they are acting in his place and in the place of every minister? opposed to their violations.”
He added: "We speak to you, O sovereigns, about the necessity of agreeing among us to stop this massacre. You use lies as an excuse that begins and never ends. We speak to you in partnership, people of power, and you rule individually. We speak by the charter and practice it, and you strike both together. We call on you to a real dialogue to reach an understanding on the election of a president and agree on his person, so you alienate the president." "You appoint a first category in his absence and proceed as usual without his presence. You claim to preserve the nation by committing such violations, and every day you destroy the state. You must know that every violation you commit is a nail in the state's coffin, and that national partnership is the basis of national unity, and here you are striking it every day." .
He concluded: “Stealing the powers of His Excellency the President, Mr. President, is like stealing public funds, and this is forbidden. The crime is not just killing a person with a weapon. The greatest crime is killing a nation according to the constitution.”
