Former President Amin Gemayel accused his political opponents in the Metn by-election of wishing to return Lebanon to the era of Syrian tutelage and said the age of commandeering the Christian decision is over.

"They fought a ferocious battle against us to prevent us from achieving success in the Independence Uprising and the Cedar Revolution, as if they want to return us to the era of tutelage and (the era) of usurping the free Lebanese decision," Gemayel told a rally in his hometown of Bikfaya on Sunday.

Gemayel praised his supporters, saying: "With your might and struggle, you told them Lebanon will remain sovereign, free and independent."

"You affirmed that the era of usurping the Christian decision is over," Gemayel told the crowd.

"You said 'Yes to Lebanon,'" Gemayel said in reference to the voters in the mountains and the Metn region.
