She strongly encourages the resignation of the Lebanese Council of Ministers, Parliament, as well as the President of the Republic in order to carry out transparent and early elections.
During her campaign, Yacoubian ran as an independent and did not taint her political campaign with any political affiliations. Ultimately, she won her seat in Lebanon’s most recent controversial elections.
Now, in her recent video uploaded to her Instagram account’s IGTV, the Parliamentarian is opening up about the reasons surrounding her decision to boycott the upcoming, and highly anticipated Parliamentary Meeting, set for Tuesday, November 12, 2019.
In her video, she makes clear that the agenda for the meeting is “not in-line” with the people’s demands.
She captioned her video “No to a meeting that does not meet the Lebanese people’s expectations. No to a meeting which is not publically aired live.”
She goes on to elaborate “[…] the true revolution only begins with the independence of the Judiciary and its transparency” – a matter she states in the only way to meet the people’s demands to return the stolen money by the government, lifting the banking secrecy, as well as other laws that the general public are demanding.
This is the first time Yacoubian misses a Parliamentary Session, a session she calls a “trap”, and one that is aimed to distract people from what is really going on and turn people against each other.
She urged everyone watching, from all corners of Lebanon, to see this meeting for what it really is, not to get off the streets, and not to allow this meeting to make us lose sight of the true outcomes that this revolution needs to attain.
In her six-minute video, Yacoubian explains why each and every item on the agenda of this meeting is non-applicable, as well as not properly framed.
With protesters’ famous chant All Means All, one begs the question: Do we believe there are Members of the current Parliament who are trying to do good and speak on behalf of the Lebanese people?
And if so, will Lebanese people buy it? So far, protesters are less than impressed with the scheduled session, so we will have to wait and see.
