The President of the Council of Ministers Saad Hariri arrived this afternoon to Jdeidet Marjeyoun, the first stop in his southern tour.
Upon his arrival, a large rally was held, in the presence of the Mufti of Hasbaya, Sheikh Hassan Dalla, Father John Azar, representing Metropolitan Elias Kfoury, a number of clerics and members of the municipal council and the candidate for the Sunni seat in the region Imad al-Khatib.
After a speech by the deputy mayor of Jdeidet Marjeyoun Sari Golmie, welcoming the Prime minister, Hariri said: "I have the honor to be with you here today in this beautiful area, which maintained its nature and coexistence Our project is the state and its advancement to serve all Lebanese all over Lebanon, especially in Marjeyoun and Jdeidet Marjeyoun. The South is dear to us just as it was dear to Martyr Prime Minister Rafic Hariri. We have great hope in all of you and to be together in these elections because our program is one, which is Lebanon, the state, coexistence, and moderation. You all know how much I worked on the issue of moderation at a time when not many were listening. I continued because I believe that this country can only continue with all the partners in it, all the Muslims and all the Christians. God has blessed us in this country with the existence of all these sects, we have to preserve it, and the only way do so is by having a strong state, a strong army and security forces, and moderation and affection among the Lebanese.
Our program as Future movement is clear. It is moderation, development, and building the country, especially this area that has always resisted the enemy that invaded it and that invaded Lebanon.
The South stood and fought back, and we will continue. Today the state is responsible of its citizens and the army is responsible of the protection of all its citizens. Thank you all and we will meet soon, on May 6th, and I want you to vote for the whole list and Imad Khatib is our candidate here.
