Bar Association calls for new Cabinet
A+ A-

BEIRUT: The Beirut Bar Association called Sunday for the formation of a new Cabinet that could fulfill the people’s aspirations and address worsening socio-economic conditions.

The call came after a number of decisions taken by the association during a conclave in a monastery in the Kesrouan village of Fatqa chaired by chairman George Jareeh.

The association said in a statement that the conclave was devoted to drawing up “a plan of action” for the next stage.

“The association affirmed adherence to its pioneering role in national principles, at the forefront of which is the strengthening of the state of justice, law and institutions, respect of public freedoms, and spreading the culture of moderation and dialogue,” the statement said.

It added that Lebanon’s salvation could not be attained without adherence to these national principles.

The association urged leaders in power to “respect the requirements of the Constitution and take adequate measures to hold the parliamentary elections on time on the basis of a modern electoral law that can ensure true representation.”
