Disy on Wednesday called on President Nikos Christodoulides to convene a National Council meeting, charging he was not keeping political parties briefed.

A short but poignant statement by Disy quoted Christodoulides as saying “we have agreed on certain things with Lebanon” after his snap visit earlier this week.

Disy questioned what exactly the president had agreed to for “an admittedly good initiative.”

“We have the same question over the UNSG’s proposals that the president said he accepted.”

Both Disy and Akel have repeatedly called on Christodoulides to convene a National Council meeting over the said proposals, with the spokesman responding on Tuesday that this would be done when the time is right.

“We believe that the major issues of the country require more collectivism and the maximum synergy between all political forces.

“It is for this reason that we insist on the regular convening of the National Council, not just for an after-the-fact briefing but for an exchange of views and to create a unified political discourse and a common strategy.”
