Deputy Kataeb Party leader and Labor Minister Sejaan Azzi Monday called for the ousting of north Lebanon MP Khaled Daher from the March 14 bloc after controversial remarks over the removal of religious banners, as the lawmaker claimed that his comments were misinterpreted.Daher strongly condemned the removal Sunday of religious banners from Tripoli, saying the measure was offensive against Islamic symbols that have decorated the city since the 1980s.Daher said that his objection to the removal of religious banners from Tripoli stems from the Lebanese constitution's reverence for the word "Allah," which according to the MP is sacred to both Muslims and Christians.In response, Machnouk vowed that no religious banner would be removed from the area.
