“The position of Hezbollah on the matter of the governor is clear and it is the necessity of discussing the matter of the central bank in government and not in the media so that the appropriate decision is taken ... on the basis of putting the country’s interest ahead of all else,” Sheikh Naim Qassem was cited as saying by broadcaster Al-Jadeed.
It did not say where he had spoken.
