NNA – Lebanese Forces Party Chief, Samir Geagea, commented in a statement on the decision to prohibit Lebanese products from entering Saudi Arabia, saying: "A new achievement today for the ‘strong covenant’ and its allies, as they were able to deprive Lebanese farmers of a basic and vital market for their products, due to the cover provided by some members of the ruling group to contraband dealers, and the failure of Lebanese administrations and concerned apparatuses in carrying out their duties, for known reasons."

He added: “It has become certainly clear that every day that this ruling group and strong mandate continue to exist will bring by a new calamity that falls on the heads of the Lebanese.”

Geagea also underlined that it has become evident that the current ruling group has failed, amidst its prevailing corruption and pursuit of its purely private interests at the expense of the interests of all the Lebanese.

He, thus, emphasized that the sole path to salvation lies in getting rid of this ruling group, “and there is no way to do that except through early parliamentary elections in which the Lebanese bear their responsibilities in order to produce a new authority that will revive the state’s project.”
