The Parliament is the only entity that says the word in any parliamentary democracy. FPM a Christian partisan populist political movement in Lebanon is organizing a demonstration to enforce its will on the people of Lebanon, threatening the security and the unity of the state.

FPM does not recognize the legitimacy of parliament, nevertheless it did not resign from parliament and government to demand a parliamentary election.

FPM demands the application of the Mithaq in which The President is a Maronite. It does not demand a referendum to establish the legitimacy of the Mithaq, instead it mobilizes Christians into the street to elect the leader of FPM.

Note, that the Candidate Sulaiman Frangiyeh is also a Maronite.

Do you believe that FPM is mobilizing to demand the application of the Mithaq, and how was the Mithaq violated when both candidates to the Presidency are Maronite.

Since opposition posts on the demonstration are banned. I am banned from the discussion. I started this thread to initiate discussion with those that oppose FPM demonstration demanding the election of Aoun through populist mobilization.

OTV, speaks in the name of the Lebanese people. I am not addressed in this speech. I do not exist. Millions of Lebanese are not represented in the National Pact 1943. Millions of Lebanese people cannot and did not vote for FPM. FPM does not speak in the name of the Lebanese people. They speak in the name of the Christians.

If they want to speak in the name of the Lebanese people. They should start with demanding the application of the Constitution of the Lebanese people. The Constitutionality of action is what determines legality and legitimacy. FPM is unconstitutional, and the Mithaq is not Constitutional.
