Berri's invocation of such a law is a deceitful act versed in order to portray himself as a ruler that, in appearance, tries to combat sectarianism while he, in truth, basks and revels in it.When Berri is calling for an electoral law with Lebanon as one district and not sectarian, dont you see that those opposed to such a step are the ones against the implementation of Taef?
@SeaAb Tfaddal...if civil marriage is not part of the Taef accord, why start up a new condition or rule or demand to fully implement Taef and abolish the confessional system? Why are you clutching at straws and finding excuses? and you keep telling me Berri is the problem? Who in Lebanon and in govt that is not a problem or an impediment, including you?
Lebanon as one district does not take into account the the dispersion of the different religious communities. Similarly to Switzerland, where it is a federal State that took into account the diveristy of the nationalities/ethnicities in it, Lebanon must similarly proceed but instead of ethnicities we have sects.
Federalism is the best way. It does not have any drawbacks while also respecting the right of minorities. In a sense, the Senate that Taef established represents"the head of the main religious families".
Thus, Lebanon as one district, which would allow for Christians to vote for their Druze or Muslim deputy, or the Muslim/Druze to vote for their own Christian deputy, will upset, and I hate to advocate for it, the delicate sectarian status quo Lebanon bled to balance. In a sense, Lebanon as one district is sectarian in and of itself.
