Gebran Bassil, leader of the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM), accused political rivals of giving up what he called “the Christian rights.”
He said they “lost their mind” when he visited Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi to seek “consensus” over the next president.
“Without making a concession over representation, we have said that we might cede it to a person on whom we can agree to prevent vacancy in Baabda,” Bassil said in a tweet.
“Our crime is that we visited the patriarch because, through his position, he can work on this consensus,” he added. Slamming rivals as “devils,” he accused them of giving up Christian “rights.”
“We will not give up the rights. We are the guardians of the rights, the republic, and the presidency to whomever it may go,” Bassil went on to claim.
