Social media flooded with shares of the news that Tayyar members were mass resigning from their party after FPM Leader Gebran Bassil’s speech on Sunday. In contrast, the hashtag “Aouni until death” began trending.
Claim: About 100 FPM members in Jbeil submitted their resignation because of the behavior of their leader.
Lebanon24 later shared that the ‘Tayyar’ has denied the mass resignations and the party stressed that the news is completely false and that differences in opinion and views are normally dealt with internally.
Internally, though, things are not as smooth as it sounds. There has been some serious legal turbulence with a lawsuit filed by a Tayyar deputy against a Tayyar member and former deputy.
There is also reportedly opposition from within the Tayyar as its followers are also suffering the crisis along with the rest of the Lebanese citizens, and are indicating the mismanagement and financial deterioration of their economy.
