Interesting that you think I have answers to what was the Parliament doing over the past 26 years, or even think that I ever voted for the esteez.
Unlike you, I do not recognize the government of Lebanon post-ta'ef and I do not participate in it, by not being a registered voter, refusing to have a Lebanese ID, or a Lebanese passport . Lebanon after Ta'ef does not represent me.
I will only participate in the decision making process when article 95 is implemented.
Only when this system is overthrown, I will vote for my representative in Lebanon. I vote in Canada at the time being.
while article 95 is probably the best thing in the constitution, i don't think it is enough to change old habits... taking away the religious ID of politicians will not help, unless our politicians and their SUPPORTERs stop thinking and behaving religiously. Saying anyone could be president or MP or PM... will not stop Berri from protecting shiaa rights, or Aoun from defending christians, or Jumblatt from defending Druze in Israel and Syria!
We need a system that imposes strict separation between state and religion.... thats why you and i love the Canadian system!
but anyway, that's a discussion for another thread
