NNA - Interior and Municipalities Minister, Nuhad al-Machnouk, called upon the people of Beirut and all of Lebanon to "participate heavily in election day on May 6," stressing that "every vote makes a difference in this new law."

"Voting for the Future Movement's electoral list will protect the capital from the lists of opponents who wish to break the city and its decision," said Machnouk during a brunch organized by the "Salaheddine Grand Association" at the "Lamb House" Restaurant in Beirut on Sunday.

"It is the first time we say that voting is in defense of the city, something which was never mentioned in any previous elections," he added, asserting that "each of us must partake in the elections."

Machnouk renewed his rejection of any talk about injustice to Beirut "for this a great city that has resisted all the calamities of the past and risen time and again."

"It is more effective to work relentlessly to achieve change rather than frustrating people with talk about being oppressed," deemed Machnouk.
