In a closed meeting with journalists, Gemayel said that the state had failed on different levels since President Michel Aoun and Prime Minister Saad Hariri took over in 2016 .Although he recognized that a new electoral law had been reached after years of deliberations, Gemayel said that the final proportional law that emerged had been endorsed under pressure from Hezbollah.Gemayel, whose party isn't represented in Cabinet, went on to lambaste the recent judicial and diplomatic appointments, saying those in power had been filling positions with those close to them without taking competencies into consideration.Gemayel responded by saying that whenever they disapprove of the government's performance they have fought back.
