| Former Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, said on Monday that his party's political position was clear, adding, "We reject any attempt that aims to cause strife."
Hariri's stance came during his meeting at Beit el Wasat with a delegation of mayors from various regions of Beirut.
He indicated that Beit el Wasat gathered all the Lebanese, especially the sons of Beirut, underscoring that this capital has always earned Rafic Hariri's love, and "we will continue his path despite all the challenges."
Concerning municipal elections, Hariri confirmed his own support for their running, adding that his father, the martyr, set an equation in this regard, based on parity between Muslims and Christians, and "I will never replace it."
On another note, Hariri, indicated that the current political conflict in the country was over Lebanon's role in the Arab neighboring.
"We hold onto our Arabism and we do not accept to isolate Lebanon from its Arab neighborhood," Hariri told a delegation of Akkar mayors at Bayt-al-Wasat.
"The Lebanese are suffering today, due to the disruption of the presidential elections," Hariri said.
"If we elect a president now, we will solve half of the problem," he stressed.
Moreover, Hariri voiced support for the holding of the municipal polls "because they are part of the democratic life in Lebanon, and they refresh the work of the municipalities and the political life."
"We are adopting a clear policy in terms of municipalities; all Akkar is the same for us; what is important is that it chooses who represents and develops it. All that matters to me is that Akkar's word be heard, especially in these elections. Consider me here to serve you, to serve Lebanon, and I am ready to offer all that could be for Lebanon. I ask you to leave the way for the youth, so that they energize the municipal work," he said, not failing to broach the trash issue.
On the relations with Saudi Arabia, Hariri said that the Kingdom had always sided by Lebanon, mediated to stop the civil war, and supported the Lebanese in the face of Israeli hostilities.
"The political conflict today is relevant to the role of Lebanon in its Arab neighboring," he corroborated.
