Hezbollah stresses commitment to national partnership
Hezbollah official Sheikh Nabil Qaouq said Saturday that his party is committed to partnership in the political life, while the ruling coalition is giving one of two choices, either hegemony or obstruction, local Naharnet website reported.
Qaouq, who is the party's leader in south Lebanon, stressed during a graduation ceremony there, that the resistance (Hezbollah) does not fear any regional or international interference, but rather "call for consensus and national partnership to save Lebanon's identity and stability."
"We have turned the chapter on American and other embassies' guardianship," Qaouq was quoted as saying.
"No matter who wins the upcoming general elections in June, there should be a national partnership in the country," Qaouq said, stressing that Lebanon is bound to be in agreement and national partnership, Xinhua reported.
This would be the only way out of the current political crises, he said, adding that "any talk about obstruction, hegemony or domination has no chance to succeed."
Several pro-government leaders were recently quoted as saying that if the opposition wins the next elections in June, they will not participate in a national unity government.
The upcoming elections on June 7 will determine who will rule the country for the next four years.
