Member of the Democratic Gathering, MP Wael Abu Faour, affirmed that “the battle is big and the targeting is big, and the war is almost universal against the Progressive Socialist Party at the public and private levels, and we are confident that the people of Rashaya and the Western Bekaa have understood the challenge, and we understand the challenge and we will respond.” His words came during a political meeting with the Progressive Women’s Union cells in the Interior Agency of the southern Bekaa, and Abu Faour said: “We meet today to talk about the upcoming electoral battle, and you see the extent of the targeting of the Progressive Socialist Party throughout Lebanon, starting from Beirut to the Chouf to Aley. To Al-Matn to the western Bekaa and Rashaya, a targeting that does not require evidence or proofs, but is clear and tangible through political alliances, political action, and the attempt of some parties to share Walid Jumblatt in parliamentary representation. He continued: “No matter what some say and claim that they are not targeting the leader of the Progressive Socialist Party, Walid Jumblatt, we say to them: No, you are targeting Walid Jumblatt and you are targeting the role of the Mukhtara, and there are some in Lebanon among the rebellious people of the March 8 forces who are still angry and angry. How are these national masses gathering together? About Walid Jumblatt. He added, “There are those who, until this moment, cannot accept how Walid Jumblatt still enjoys this political, popular and parliamentary support, and there is a clear project to create a reluctance parliamentary bloc in the Parliament that supports the March 8 forces in the middle that counts on Walid Jumblatt, there is an attempt to create a bloc.” Parliamentary opposition from among Walid Jumblatt and Walid Jumblatt’s public.The attempt is not new but old and they have tried repeatedly and failed and this time they will fail too, for the simple reason that these national masses that have turned around and rally around Walid Jumblatt have sufficient political awareness and have sufficient political incentive to rally again around Walid Jumblatt. and Taymour Jumblatt, and this attempt will fall.” And he continued, “At the region level, the Progressive Socialist Party is in the targeting circle, and the evidence is the list that was announced, which includes all the components of the eighth of March, and the goal is to falsify the political identity of the Rashaya region, re-wipe its political identity and return the Rashaya region to before 2005. You all remember The area before 2005, the area was subject to guardianship, the title of guardianship could change and its name changed, but we return to guardianship, before 2005 the area was deprived of forms and types of deprivation, and therefore it is required to return to the pre-2005 development and services.” Abu Faour added: “Before 2005, do you remember, it was said that Walid Jumblatt was forbidden to interfere in Rashaya, Hasbaya and Wadi al-Taym? What was essentially required was to separate Wadi al-Taym from Mount Lebanon and from Mukhtara, and today I tell you that this will not be, will not be, we will not allow With the return of the region to before 2005, neither politically nor developmentally, we will not allow the return of guardianship, whatever the form, name, color or address of this guardianship to the Rashaya region and the western Bekaa, we will not allow them to return to impose a political dam between Mukhtara and Wadi al-Tayyim. Its choice for decades has been on the side of the chosen one, alongside this democratic Arab leadership, the leadership of Kamal Jumblatt, the leadership of Walid Jumblatt, and the leadership of Taymour Jumblatt.” He said: “If someone wants to dive in the same waters of the river, we tell him that the river’s waters have flowed, and these are pipe dreams. The battle is big, the targeting is great, and the war is almost universal against the Socialist Party on the public and private levels. We are all confident that the people of Rashaya and the Western Bekaa have They understood the challenge, and we understood the challenge, and we will respond to this challenge at the polls in the upcoming elections. Abu Faour described the Progressive Women’s Union’s presence in the region as “qualitative, not only in media and politics, but in alleviating the suffering of our people and standing by them.” The party’s work, and the party leader and Taymour Jumblatt received this activist women’s message, so comrade Afra Eid was nominated in Tripoli for the first time in the party’s history, and comrade Habouba Aoun was nominated in the Chouf region. The party has the role of women in the party and society, we insisted on the nomination, and you see that comrade Habouba and comrade Afra have created a situation at the level of women’s presence in the party and at the level of raising women’s issues and women’s participation in public life during the parliamentary elections.” He continued, “This matter is not seasonal and does not end after the election season. Rather, it is a strategic choice taken by the Socialist Party, and the party has always been in support of women’s rights, but this time the matter is different as it pushes women to be in the front row and asks them to be in the front row.” This is a message that you must seize and work with its content, every woman at the level of her work circle, in the village, in the family, in the region, and specifically at the level of our region.” Abu Faour concluded, by saying: “We are confident that there is a wide spectrum of people from the western Bekaa and Rashaya from all groups and all sects who will respond to this challenge, and we are confident that the results of the elections will be decisive for our interest. “
