مبادرة "انقاذية" لعون: "اختيار الشعب للرئيس" و"انتخاب كل طائفة نوابها"

Read this story in English W460

تقدم رئيس "التيار الوطني الحر" النائب ميشال عون بمبادرة تتعلق بالملفين الرئاسي والنيابي، بحيث يُختار الرئيس من قبل الشعب مباشرة وان تختار كل طائفة نوابها.

وفي مؤتمر صحافي عقده قبل ظهر الاثنين في الرابية أعلن عون عن مبادرة وصفها بـ"الانقاذية"، من اجل انهاء مرحلة الشغور في سدة الرئاسة الاولى، وذلك من خلال إجراء تعديل دستوري "محدود" يهدف لجعل انتخاب الرئيس الماروني مباشرة من الشعب وعلى دورتين.

الدورة الاولى "تأهيلية على مستوى الناخبين المسيحيين والثانية على المستوى الوطنية تجمع المرشحين الاولين"، يوضح عون.

وقال: "انا مع انتخاب رئيس بالامس قبل اليوم وغدا، والامور "لن تخرب" بحال تأخرنا في انتخاب الرئيس".

يُشار الى ان كلاً من عون ورئيس "حزب القوات اللبنانية" سمير جعجع، اعلنا في أكثر من مرة عن حصولهما على التأييد المسيسحي الاكبر وفق "احصاءات" قاما بها.

ومع القاء رئيس الجمهورية السابق ميشال سليمان خطاب الوداع في 24 ايار الفائت، رافضاً التمديد ومع فشل النواب في انتخاب رئيس عتيد، دخل لبنان في مرحلة الشغور الرئاسي. ووفق الدستور فإن الحكومة "مجتمعة" تتولى صلاحيات رئاسة الجمهورية.

أما وعن الاستحقاق النيابي، فشدد عون في مؤتمره على وجوب اقرار قانون انتخابي جديد "يؤمن صحة التمثيل والمناصفة".

واقترح ان تقوم كل طائفة بانتخاب نوابها "وهذا يؤمن العدالة المطلقة والاستقرار"، لافتاً الى ان "الادعاء بأن هذاالقانون يعزز الطائفية هو ادعاء خاطئ لان الطائفية موجدة".

وأضاف ان "هذا القانون يدعو لاجراء حوار جدي لالغاء الطائفية السياسية وانشاء مجلس للشيوخ، وهناك فرصة لا تتكرر ويجب الاستفادة من هذه الفرصة".

يُذكر ان مجلس النواب أقر في 31 ايار 2013 التمديد لنفسه 17 شهرا تنتهي في 20 تشرين الثاني 2014، في جلسة حضرها 97 نائبا، صوتوا جميعهم للتمديد، وقاطعها نواب "التيار الوطني الحر"، بعد أن فشلت جميع الأطراف السياسية بالوصول إلى قانون انتخاب في أربع سنوات منصرمة.

If that retard and his allies truly want to elect a president, they should cut the crap and send their MPs to the parliament to do their job.

Lebanese Americans see Lebanon paralyzed by the party system, the vacuum of not having a President has a lot of negative affects on the State, as such Lebanon should elect a neutral President that is liked by all sides. The clear choice is General Jean Kahwaji.

General Jean Kahwaji for President of Lebanon 2014.

This is the french presidential system. Round one has as many candidates that sign up. The top 2 candidates that are most popular amongst christains then have a national, all citizen election. The winner is the presidant of the republic! Why not? General kahwajie could be a candidate and if he makes it pass the first round then good luck to him.

I like this chance for all Lebanese to elect their president with the christains deciding the final 2 candidates to represent them. The constitutional ammedment should be permanent and give the president power to dissolve the cabinet and call early general elections aswell.

Bravo Aoun !

But how will you present yourself if you have no program ???

If you don't have a program and are confident people will vote for you, this can mean 2 things :

- The vote will be rigged
- Lebanese people are sheep and will vote for whoever their Za3im tells them to vote for

In this case, what's the purpose of the elections ?

Tell me again what your program is before suggesting to dilute Christian votes for their president from 50% to 30% !!!!!!!!!

He said he has no program and that "he is the program".

Just because Geagea announced a program, Aoun doesn't want to "sink" to his level and announce his :)

Stripping christians of their already non-existant priviledges is not a proposition.

The only way you can have the people vote directly for presidents in Lebanon is to start by abolishing all sectarian parties. I always said this.

I'm for his initiative ! but it has to be done right.

Everything Aoun has done so far is harm the position of christians in Lebanon. His alliance with HA, biggest proponents of the muthalatha (who even went so far as lying about france suggesting it when it was Iran) is a huge indicator of this.

Aoun does not serve the interests of christians !

Thumb ado.australia 16:52 ,2014 حزيران 30

Flame catcher... You talk about Aoun harming the position of the christains as if you are one. If the christains hate him, he will not survive the first round and it will proberbly be geagea and khawajie or boutros harb in the second round... Then even if aoun made it pass the first round he would not win the 2nd round. Let's agree that this is a good initiative that should be considered and pretend that hariri or geagea was first to announce it. No sect has anywhere near a voting majority and a direct election of our president is a good thing that gives the people the voice and removes political back room deals and foriegn influence.

Thumb ado.australia 18:15 ,2014 حزيران 30

anonymetexasusa... Who cares? If he wins after 2 rounds then he deserves it. He he doesn't then bad luck. The people will decide and this is democracy. Obama won with a majority... George bush won with out a majority. Different strokes of democracy. The USA have the college system and gw bush was one of only a very few presidents that won without a majority vote... How well did that go?

Why only look at a system that denies the candidate you like? If the people want him then respect their decision! You're already sounding like Rush Limbuagh and Hannity.

aoun is once again talking like this because of the upcoming MP elections :) he is once more playing the confessional game.

but what he does not know is that the Lebanese people will not fall once more in his trap: he can hope to be elected while most of his actual MPs will not be elected, and that according to the polls he has in his hands.

once more he is trying the sectarian game which will not be in his favor this time round.

Don wanna talk like this but its the way it is..

Just cause mr Aoun today has the support of the Shia he knows that he can win that is why he wants this. But he is opening the door on something very dangerous.. this guy is really blinded by that chair. Say what you want about the ta2if but after the war between jaajaa and aoun its the only thing giving christians what little rights theyve got remained. Because they are becoming a minority

This is a very good proposal, on condition that all Lebanese citizens, regardless of sect are allowed to participate. This must include expats. Very good start, Aoun. Now keep pushing until it goes through! This is our chance to move closer to a more inclusive democracy. Our MPs are useless middlmen. Cut out the middlemen!

yes but it is not acceptable that christian only vote in the first round for the president. What does it mean then? 1) The non maronite 2nd round vote is meaningless and 2) the president is for all lebanese and not for maronite only.

Thumb ado.australia 17:13 ,2014 حزيران 30

greatpierro...not being Lebanese (I guess Israeli), you wouldn't know that the president must be a Maronite Christian, the PM a Sunni, and the speaker of parliament a Shiite. Having the christains elect the first round candidates that must be maronite and essentially allow every person of the Lebanese republic the chance to directly elect one of two most popular christain candidates is a good step forward that removes back room deals and foriegn powers deals that result in a consensus president without popular local political support.

Aoun is again showing how destructive he can be to the lebanese communities living together. his argument that the sunni pm is the strongest among his community and so is the chiite head of parliament is just de la poudre au yeux. the sunni mp we had so far cannot be described all as being the strongest in the community: omar karamé, sanioura, salam, mikati. The latter one was actually very unpopular so was omar karamé. please stop destroying lebanon mr aoun.

Defecto... The decision doesn't just fall on the Muslims. Approx 40% of eligible voters are Christians. If the remaining 60% are approximately divided, Shiite 30% Sunni 25% Druze 5% then all of lebanons people have a significant say in the winner and representative of the republic of Lebanon.

anonymetexasusa... The president is not "our Christian" president... He is Lebanon's president! He just, must happen to be a Maronite. The speaker and PM is elected through Christian mps as well as Muslim. The current difference is that it is often their most popular politician that is elected. Since the taef accord, the Lebanese president that is reserved for the christains has always been some consensus president that has no popular Christian base. This proposed amendment would ensure a popular Christian is elected by all of Lebanon and not through political back door foriegn deals!
