We don't need another system. We need to revoke the 94 law which has damaged the christian demographics from Baabda, Zahle to Akkar and even Tripoli. Once the law is revoked the 300K alot of which are not even on Lebanese land would have been stricken off the electoral lists. The voter list would then be at least 43% christian.
The christians then need to work on a law that suits them. Taef needs to be implemented so we can have a senate. Half of its members christians and the other half muslims. Nothing can be passed without 7/10 approval. This will take away alot of powers from the Speaker which is the same in any country. The PM and Speaker there is a rotation. The President and the senate chair are christians and they are rotated also. President has veto rights and can return back the bill to Parliament or the senate.
15 district law as it is now but full proportional and no sect allotment in Parliament.
Once that is done the church needs to work with the youth. Work needs to be created and the youth of the country need to participate in all walks of life. Just saying mafe cheghel and staying at home until 40 and then get married and having a child at 45 is not good enough. There has to be emphasis on family life and that it is important. Without children there is no family and the church is not rich if there are no youth or children attending it. The church also needs to give incentives to christian families. It needs to build on land and give apartments for cheaper or half the price for the christians. It needs to also give christians a reduction of schooling fees. The politicians that are christians need to be in this also. People listen to their politicians more than they do to the church or the local priest.
Just not looking at the issue at hand will not take it away. We need to look at this and tackle it head on. I for one live in Australia married in early 2016 and had a child in 2017 and another in early 2018. If there was a job back home for my wife and I I would go back in an instant. There is nothing better than one living in his country you just need the conditions to be there so once can return home.
Eventhough I am orthodox I have to salute our maronite brothers who are the ONLY christians in the ME who have held their heads high. Most of the other christians are just cronies of the regime that is in place. I have full confidence that we all of us as christians can achieve what we want and those who remain in the country to remain and those who are outside like myself to return. It just takes a common vision from all the christian parties and the church and some work.
I am all for revoking whatever law. Can we also have a census both abroad and in Lebanon, after all your second, third and fourth generation christian Lebanese who had lost or abandoned their citizenship reclaim it?
Let us know where we stand and how we can build a fair, just and modern and progressive country for all Lebanese, regardless who is majority and who is not majority. Let us have a census (home and abroad) and the next step would be a new constitution and abolishing the confessional system and implementing secularism. The Muslims are ready to move the country ahead. Are the Christians ready to move ahead and leave the colonial past behind?
Dont you feel ashame, as a Lebanese, that for you to be president, right down to a school teacher, it is based on your sect identity and not based on merit or any sort of fairness?
We are the most racist people on earth. Even towards ourselves. And that racism is from hatred. Let's face it's, we are full of shit and hate. We discriminate against ourselves and then take that racist spirit to discriminate against blacks, and Asians.
