President Aoun: “One of the reasons for the persistence of displaced persons on Lebanese soil is receiving international aid”.

 

Wronecka: “We are satisfied with the start of the electoral process, and the international forces have put their capabilities at the army's disposal to search for the missing of the sunken boat”.

 

MP Dib: “I continued my work in public affairs inside or outside Parliament, inspired by the principles of the Free Patriotic Movement and the positions of its founder, President Aoun”.

 

 

President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, followed up on the voting process of the dispersed Lebanese registered for the parliamentary elections for the 2022 session in the Arab countries and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

 

President Aoun remained in contact with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Abdullah Bou Habib.

 

The Foreign Minister provided President Aoun successively with the developments of the voting operations in these countries, which were transmitted directly by video and audio to the operations room established by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for this purpose.

 Minister of National Defense

 

The elections was the focus of a discussion between President Aoun and Minister of National Defense Maurice Sleem, who briefed the President on the general situation in the country and the security measures taken to secure the appropriate atmosphere for the achievement of the elections in stable and safe conditions. 

 

The meeting also tackled the situation of the institutions affiliated with the Ministry of Defense, the needs of the military, in addition to the funds allocated to secure their financial needs.

 

UN Special Coordinator:

President Aoun met the United Nations Special Coordinator in Lebanon, Mrs. Joanna Wronecka, today at Baabda Palace.

 

The President informed Wronecka that the electoral process started today in a number of Lebanese embassies in the Arab countries and in the Islamic Republic of Iran, to be completed on Sunday, and will be continued in Europe, North and South America, Africa and the United Arab Emirates, after completing all arrangements to ensure fair and transparent elections, from which the Parliament will emerge, which it is hoped will express the aspirations and hopes of the Lebanese. 

 

The President also affirmed that the military and security forces have taken all necessary measures to ensure that the elections are held on May 15 in all Lebanon in a safe and stable atmosphere and to prevent candidates from exceeding the specified financial ceilings, which constitutes a violation of the laws and regulations in force.

 

This issue was indicated by the Supervisory Board for Elections, which follows according to the law, the electoral process in various respects.

 

In addition, President Aoun addressed the conference that will be held in Brussels on May 9 and 10 to discuss the future of the displaced Syrians in the countries neighboring Syria.

The President said that Lebanon’s position is clear regarding the necessity of the Syrian refugees’ return to their country after the security stability experienced by the majority of Syrian regions, especially since Lebanon has not capable of bearing the burdens of the Syrian displacement due to the negative repercussions on the economic, social, health, educational and security conditions in it, especially in light of the difficult economic conditions it is going through. 

 

Moreover, President Aoun stressed that Lebanon has fulfilled its duty towards the displaced since 2011, but it has become unable to continue, which necessitates the return of the displaced to their country and the provision of international assistance to them there instead of distributing it to them in Lebanon, because one of the reasons for the persistence of the displaced on Lebanese soil is receiving international aid, knowing that many of these displaced move to Syria periodically and return at the end of the month to get international aid.

 

At the beginning, Mrs. Wronecka had conveyed to President Aoun her condolences for the victims of the boat that sank off Tripoli two weeks ago, pointing out that the international forces put their technical capabilities at the disposal of the Lebanese army to help in the search for the missing. 

 

Wronecka indicated her satisfaction with the start of the electoral process abroad, which will be completed at Lebanon without any obstacles, knowing that the United Nations has contributed to securing logistical needs required by the parliamentary elections.

 

MP Dib:

The President met MP Hikmat Dib and discussed with him the current political situation and developments. 

MP Dib asserted that he “Continues in public affairs, whether inside the parliament or outside it, always inspired by the principles of the Free Patriotic Movement and the positions of its founder, President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun”.
