Marada Movement chief MP Suleiman Franjieh on Sunday slammed “those who invent bizarre laws” and yet claim victory when an agreement is reached on proportional representation, in an apparent jab at Free Patriotic Movement leader Jebran Bassil.
“People have a memory. Those who disavowed proportional representation and sought to drop it through inventing bizarre laws cannot consider themselves to be heroes when it gets approved,” Franjieh said during a Marada rally.
He also noted that Marada will have “candidates and friends” in all electoral districts in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
Bassil had proposed several so-called hybrid laws that combine proportional representation with the winner-takes-all system, arguing that they would secure better “Christian representation.”
