Pro-government Lebanese Christian chief of Lebanese Forces (LF) party Samir Geagea said Saturday that the opposition is seeking destruction because they have no chance of winning the upcoming parliamentary elections in June, Elnashra website reported.
"They have no hope in winning the elections, they become destructive and use the language of threats and misleading," Geagea told a delegation visiting him in Byblos, Xinhua reported.
Geagea added that what is happening these days "does not bring good news," hinting to accusations from both sides concerning the wiretapping issue which have created a tense atmosphere.
Geagea accused opposition minister of telecommunication Jibran Basil of refusing to provide information to the UN commission investigating the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafic Hariri.
Basil said Friday that he will not release tapped telephone calls to any side unless they follow legal procedures.
"Officials from the UN commission complained to the government about delay in obtaining information," Geagea said, adding that Basil has no right to obstruct the wiretapping which has been going on since 1994.
The wiretapping law in Lebanon was formed during the Syrian military and political presence in the country, under the pretext of protecting national security.
