Azzi Unveils Christian Areas' Share of Developmental Funds

Labor Minister Sejaan Azzi revealed that he has documented evidence proving inequity in terms of public works across regions, saying he had handed Minister Ghazi Zeaiter a list detailing the funds granted to each district.

In remarks published in Assafir newspaper, Azzi stressed that Christian areas have been only accorded 18 percent of the total amount spent by the ministry, deploring the lack of developmental balance between all regions.

"Zeiater dismissed the list, so I asked him to submit counter-facts so as to prove his claim," he said.

Azzi noted that Christians take share of the blame as they are still reluctant to applying to public jobs, adding that those who make such imbalanced appointments are mainly held responsible for this.
