Kataeb MP Elias Hankache on Tuesday revealed that the party's politburo has unanimoulsy decided to not give the vote of confidence to the new government, saying that it does not differ from the previous governments.
“The new government’s policy statement is similar to the one adopted by the previous Cabinet, except that one clause pertaining to the CEDRE reforms has been added to it,” Hankache told Voice of Lebanon radio station, adding that the government's main components have declared it already as a failure.
The Kataeb lawmaker took pride in the party's mission to enforce accountability in a country where this concept is missing, affirming that the Kataeb will stand firm in the face of all trespasses and wrongdoings.
“We are playing our role in accordance with our conscience, history and struggle course," he said.
"There may be a lot of lawmakers who will grant confidence to the government, and the number may be the highest one witnessed throughout the years, but we ask the Lebanese one question: Are you satisfied with the current political approach in the country?” Hankache asked.
