Future bloc convenes at Center House to discuss political developments

Future bloc on Tuesday convened at the Center House under the chairmanship of MP Bahia Hariri, to discuss most recent political developments on the local arena.

In a statement issued in the wake of the meeting and read out by MP Nazih Najem, the bloc reiterated the need to protect the government's program for economic advancement and to dissociate it from narrow political and partisan agendas.

The bloc underlined that "the administrative, financial and sectoral reforms adopted by the government in its ministerial statement, constitute the real and proper gateway to halt squandering, fight corruption and prevent encroachment on public funds," the statement read.

The bloc hailed the outcome of the visit of Prime Minister Saad Hariri to Saudi Arabia and his meeting with the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdul Aziz.

"Consolidating fraternal relations with the Kingdom will bolster Lebanon's status among its brethrens and give a strong impetus to the government's advancement program, and renews the confidence of the Saudi and Gulf brethrens in Lebanon's role in its Arab environment," bloc maintained.

The bloc also pointed out that "the re-activation of channels of joint work between the concerned committees of both countries, a blessed step in the right direction."
