Hariri responds to Nasrallah: What about percentage of Lebanese who want president?

Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri responded to the last speech of Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. He said on Twitter: "If the Future Movement had the intention to solely dominate authority, it wouldn't have approved and signed a mixed proportional draft law with the "Lebanese Forces" and the "Democratic Gathering" in parliament."

He added: "We heard Sayyed Hassan say that he holds on to the opinion of those who represent 20 percent or more of any group. Why doesn't he listen to the opinion of the majority of the Lebanese people, including the silent majority of Shiites, before involving our country in wars in Syria and Yemen? Or is democracy, in Sayyed Hassan's opinion, to buy and sell percentages in Lebanon, and slaughter any percentage of Syrians who do not join the unilateralism of his tyrant ally in Damascus? Finally, what is in the opinion of Sayyed Hassan, the percentage of Lebanese who want a president and has he been abiding by their will while disabling quorum for two years? The worst misfortune is the one that makes you laugh!"
