| The Future Bloc declared that it is still awaiting a clear response from designated Prime Minister Najib Mikati, to the list of questions it had earlier submitted to him, before it finally decides whether or not it will take part in Mikati's government.
A statement issued Tuesday following its regular meeting at Qoraytem under Premier Fouad Siniora, the bloc voiced the need to preserve Lebanon's democratic system facing pressures to coerce an autocratic rule in the country.
The bloc called for proceeding towards the advancement of the state as well as for respecting the Constitution and democratic maturity, opposed to resorting to arms, terrorism insurgents, and distorted elections. The bloc voiced its adherence to the covenant even if some ousters retreated.
'We call for a unified living, between Muslims and Christians, and for moderation and stability, and we advocate a strong state, with sovereignty over its land, and which represents and works for all the Lebanese, Muslims and Christians,” the statement said.
The Future bloc addressed the 6th commemoration of the assassination of martyr Premier Rafic Hariri, on February 14.
'The commemoration of the February 14 terrorist crime this year coincides with hardships and challenges, for the public of Lebanese martyrs struggling in defense of the constants of the nationalistic revolution.”
"Lebanon continues to support the Arab causes, in particular the Palestinian Cause, but it will not continue to be a lonely terrain for conflicts and wars fought on behalf of Arabs and Muslims and will not be forced into fighting wars on behalf of others,” the statement affirmed.
The Future bloc also addressed the grave developments in Egypt and the overlapping outlooks. "Egypt is an Arab Republic, and the Egyptians are Arab people, who had always been and continue to be at the forefront of the Arab nation, thus any downfall in Egypt would affect the whole Arab region,” the statement said.
