Ex-Lebanese PM calls to boycott parliamentary polls


(MENAFN- IANS)

Beirut, Jan 25 (IANS) Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri called on members of his Future Movement party to boycott the upcoming parliamentary elections.

'We will continue to serve our people, but our decision is to suspend any role in power, politics and parliament,' said Hariri in a live televised address.

Hariri, a leading Lebanese Sunni politician, said he succeeded in preventing a new civil war in Lebanon but was not able to provide the people with a better life he had promised, reports Xinhua news agency.

There will be little positive prospect for Lebanon in the light of Iranian influence, sectarianism, and the collapse of the state, he added.
