Mustaqbal Gears up for Tripoli Rally on ‘Fall of Arms and Spring of Independence’
The Mustaqbal movement is gearing up for a mass rally it is planning to hold in the northern city of Tripoli on Sunday on the occasion of Independence Day.
An Nahar daily said that MPs Mohammed Kabbara, Samir al-Jisr, Marwan Hamadeh and Butros Harb will address the crowds. Al-Mustaqbal parliamentary bloc leader MP Fouad Saniora will deliver the speech of former Premier Saad Hariri, it added.
But As Safir newspaper said that Hariri will make a statement from the French capital via video link.
According to the newspaper, the Saudi leadership has asked him not to make escalatory stances against Premier Najib Miqati and the Syrian regime.
The rally that will be held under the slogan of ‘The Fall of Arms and the Spring of Independence’ at Miqati’s hometown is aimed at sending a message to the premier that the Mustaqbal movement has mass supporters in Tripoli and the North.
The movement is relying on its members in the northern district of Akkar to attend the rally in huge numbers at the Rashid Karami International Fair Complex.
More supporters are expected to gather outside the complex to watch the coverage of the event on giant screens.
