ABI RAMIA: LAW ON APPOINTMENTS MECHANISM IS IN VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION AND WE ARE GOING TO CHALLENGE IT

“Strong Lebanon” Parliamentary Bloc Member, MP Simon Abi Ramia, considered Sunday that the law on administrative appointments violates the Lebanese Constitution, voicing his Bloc’s plans to challenge it.

Speaking to Radio “Voice of Lebanon” this morning, Abi Ramia called for “resorting to a responsible logic in this period that Lebanon is going through, and to stay away from political intimidations.”

He deemed that achievements have been made since the beginning of the mandate, but they are not sufficient. “There is a need for a constitutional workshop in order to develop constitutional life and bridge the gaps in the constitution, instead of striking at the current constitutional formula,” he underlined.

Abi Ramia stressed that “transparency and openness in approaching national issues are always required from the Lebanese.”

Regarding the Capital Control daft law submitted by the Free Patriotic Movement, Abi Ramia said: “It aims to create a balance between giving people their rights and maintaining financial reserves in the Central Bank,” noting that it was referred to the parliamentary committees for further study.
