Mikati: Let election day be a landmark station en route to democracy
Lebanon - Prime Minister, Najib Mikati, on Wednesday delivered a word in which he called on the Lebanese in various regions to heavily participate in parliamentary elections on Sunday, May 15, 2022.
“Two successful rounds of elections were held last week for expatriate voters, and this has constituted an essential step in cementing ties between the Lebanese diaspora and Lebanese residents,” Mikati explained.
"The government, through the Ministry of the Interior, has taken all the necessary measures to ensure voting safety and freedom, but the main role remains entrusted to citizens who are expected to head to polling stations and cast their ballots so that their votes will be a practical translation of their opinions and aspirations,” the PM added.
“Voting on election day is a right and a duty that should not be evaded, and it’s the responsibility of citizens, in the first place, is to choose whom they want to represent them. This is the natural pathway towards the change that the Lebanese aspire, regardless of their affiliations,” added Mikati.
“Let us vote and let election day be a landmark step en route to democracy for the future of Lebanon and the Lebanese,” the PM concluded.
