NNA - MP Bilal Abdallah confirmed today in an interview with "Voice of All Lebanon 93.3" Radio Channel, that "dialogue is the only solution to get out of the impasse of the presidential election, as it is not possible to remain in this vortex."
He highlighted the "necessity of learning from the regional transformations which showed that Lebanon is not a priority for the outside world during this period," emphasizing the need for internal dialogue.
Regarding the spiritual retreat called for by Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Beshara Boutros Al-Rahi, MP Abdallah affirmed that "limiting consensus to the Christian parties alone is not enough, for there must be an understanding between all the components, because we are talking about the fate of the whole country and not only the Christians."
Asked about the visit of Progressive Socialist Party Chief, Walid Jumblatt, to Kuwait, the MP explained that the aim was to confirm the historical relationship between the two countries and Lebanon's relations with the Arab world.
In response to a question about the investigations with Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh, Abdallah indicated that "the basis of the crisis we are going through are the wrong economic and financial policies that made people feel imaginary affluence," considering that "Salameh bears part of the responsibility, as do successive governments and parliaments," leaving the matter up to the local and foreign judiciary.
On the public health dossier, Abdallah considered that patching and subsidy policies are not enough, saying: "Without a political solution and injecting money, we are on the verge of a health disaster in the country. He believed that "the health system is the most affected by the repercussions of the prevailing economic crisis."
The MP indicated that "the Parliamentary Health Committee is trying as much as possible to exert pressure to maintain the minimum standards of the hospital sector, in light of the absence of legislation in Parliament."
