There can be a new pact. The old one was undemocratic, apartheid in nature and imposed without recourse to the people. Any new pact must be approved through a referendum by the Lebanese.I am definitely not happy with FPM but I can’t blame them. They are trying to change from the inside, but too corrupt.
I will vote for FPM but I need a clear program to change the system without touching the National Pact though
Yes this can work but we can’t abolish sectarianism and we need to maintain the quotas in different t ranks.There can be a new pact. The old one was undemocratic, apartheid in nature and imposed without recourse to the people. Any new pact must be approved through a referendum by the Lebanese.
For example, we can have a new constitution where the state is secular and whereby it is stated that if the President (directly elected with presidential powers) is Maronite, the two vice presidents should be Shia and Sunni. And if the president is Sunni, then the two vice should be Shia and Maronite. And if the president is Shia, then the two vice can be Maronite and Sunni. This is just an example. We can have only one vice or four. It doesnt matter. And it doesnt have to be from a specific sect. But there should be tolerance and diversity to accommodate the two different religions as a guarantee to everyone. This can lead to the creation of two or three big national coalitions or national parties that appeal and accommodate all sects. We can have a majority and a minority and within them from all secta in parliament and in the Senate along political lines. But the current system and current pact are outdated and will continue to exist, if at all without the approval of the majority of Lebanese. A system that doesnt have the trust and confidence of the majority of Lebanese. We need Taef to be fully implemented. We arent proposing something new actually. We are only asking for the Taef accord that ended the civil war to be implemented fully, after 30 years of non implementation.
