Veteran Druze leader Walid Jumblatt has spoken out against the government’s privatization drive

Veteran Druze leader Walid Jumblatt has spoken out against the government’s privatization drive. “‘With regard to the party's policy of counteracting this liberal wave that wants to sweep off the vital parts of the state, we will address it with a lot of calm to preserve the public domain and reject such brutal privatization that Lebanon has not seen for a long time,’ Jumblatt went on. He pointed to the power of privatization to overthrow stable regimes. ‘I also hope that the parties that have not yet spoken about privatization would do so, as now is the time because poverty does not distinguish between the Shiites, the Druze, the Sunnis and the Christians,’ emphasized Jumblatt.”
