Early elections are not bad. In fact the uprising is demanding this. A non-partisan technocrat government is needed sooner because of pressing economic issues, and because it would be more trusted in doing early elections. No the uprising does not need to kill itself by trying to organize as a party! this is the worse advice you can give them at this time, and I hope they are smart enough not to take it.well emotions aside, practically, i can't see how FM, HA, Amal, FPM, PSP, and LF can all give up all their powers and go stay at home, when elections happened just last year.. if we say half the country was in the street, they can argue that they have the other half.. so not sure how you can convince them to give up EVERYTHING. Unless the revolution does it by force... but would that draw the main parties' to the streets as well to flex their muscles?
If we reach a deadlock, the only solution would be through early elections... that would determine the size of everyone.
As i said before, the risk here is that the main parties - even if they lost some ground - MIGHT (and i say might) be back as a majority... what do we do then? accept the will of the people and form a government with a majority of the corrupt traditional politicians and a minority of the 7irak who have no 7awla wala kouwata??
that's why i said before, the 7irak needs at one point to get organized and offer itself as a serious and well established alternative. Not necessarily one leader who might be targeted and discredited by the sulta.. but maybe a committee or a group of intellectuals. Any even then, they might not win the majority in the first round.. it might take a few elections before they take over.. but they have to start somewhere. To think that FM/FPM/HA/Amal will just give up everything now and go home is just absurd... .practically.
No matter who wins these elections, going back to the people is important after such large uprisings.
One more thing, there are some parties who have been clear that they want and accept both early elections and technocrat non-partisan gov in the transition. LF is one. Kataeb too.
