NNA - Free Patriotic Movement Chief, MP Gebran Bassil, said today on Twitter: “Before the Prime Minister heads to the Vatican to reveal an open-mindedness, if he could sign the 565 Decree on restoring the nationality to those who are entitled to it by law...The PM is not signing because the majority are Christians, and this is according to his confession! He ought to sign all decrees at once, not one by one to blackmail us politically with every signature, as he says.”
Bassil added, "The decrees are only declarative. This is their right by the Nationality Restoration Law; we do not know any of them and their number does not change the demography of the country. He ought to sign without sectarianism! Also, before leaving power, and most likely without going back this time, as he well-knows, if he would only reduce the violations of the constitution and laws, so as to leave behind a good memory other than his famous title in the Republic!"
