Geagea Announces Presidential Program, Stresses Need to Control Proliferation of Arms

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea announced on Wednesday his presidential program that focused on restoring the authority of the state against the proliferation of weapons during a time of regional unrest.

He declared: “No country in the world would accept that its authority be subject to armed groups that exist outside of the state.”

“There will be no compromise in dealing with the spread of arms,” he stressed.

“The position of the presidency still retains important privileges despite the adoption of the Taef Accord” in 1989, he continued, while blaming the 29-year period of Syrian hegemony over Lebanon for weakening the presidency.

“The president is capable of playing a central role in directing political life in Lebanon towards the true national path,” Geagea said.

“A strong president is capable of implementing the constitution and serving national goals that achieve higher Lebanese national interests,” he continued.

Lebanon is passing through one of the most dangerous stages in its history and the state can no longer tolerate that it be burdened by those obstructing its functioning, he added.

“The Lebanese entity can no longer support any side that creates imbalance in the state and violates its principles and coexistence,” he stated.

There should be a radical solution to this flaw in Lebanon, stressed the LF leader.

“The greatest challenge I face in running for the presidency lies in implementing the constitution and laws in a manner that will restore the authority of the state,” Geagea declared.

The presidency is the starting point for achieving these goals, he said.

“The current phase in Lebanon does not tolerate semi-solutions, semi-positions, and semi-presidents,” he added, noting that centrism has turned into a “lethal grey area that resulted in lack of clarity in stances.”

“There is no room for centrism, which has only yielded compromises to accommodate the status quo,” he lamented.

The main challenge lies in committing to the Taef Accord as a means to implement the constitution and achieve national balance, he continued.

Moreover, he stressed the need to tackle the flaws that have emerged in the presidency, while calling for staging the parliamentary elections as soon as the presidential polls are over.

“We seek a state that protects its people and imposes complete and balanced security at its institutions and throughout its territory,” he declared.

Geagea's presidential program called for introducing reform in the judiciary, saying: “There can be no state, economy, or security without a proper justice system.”

“I will not be lenient in combating corruption among judges and I seek to expose them and hold them accountable for their actions,” he said.

In addition, he called for introducing reform at state security institutions, which he said are still subject to the influence of Syrian hegemony despite the Syrian troop withdrawal in 2005.

“The military and security institutions are the only remaining means to preserve Lebanon's security and stability,” he remarked.

Commenting on Lebanon's economy, Geagea pledged to develop Lebanon's ports and airport, noting that it is no longer acceptable during the age of globalization for the country to only have one functioning airport.

The economy can also be revitalized through the tourism sector, which the LF chief noted was only contributing to 18 percent of the country's income.

Furthermore, he vowed to take a transparent approach in exploiting Lebanon's oil and gas wealth, stressing that he will protect it from corruption.

Revitalizing the economy also requires reform, cutting down on unemployment, reducing the public debt, and limiting youth immigration, he stated.

His program also tackled the condition at border-crossings, calling for putting an end to the disorganization at air, land, and water crossings.

He pledged to tackle corruption at these outlets “without any civil, military, and religious exceptions even if new laws have to be put in place to this end.”

Geagea also called for annulling the death penalty, improving the situation at Lebanese prisons, revising all laws that concern women's rights, and applying a healthcare program that includes all the Lebanese people.

Commenting on regional developments, he reiterated the need for Lebanon to commit to the Baabda Declaration, prevent the Syrian crisis from spreading to Lebanon, and collaborate with Arab countries to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

On this note, he expressed his rejection of the naturalization of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, while stressing that Syrian refugees should also be allowed to return to their homeland once the conflict is resolved.

Geagea also voiced his support for the Arab Spring, “despite some of its shortcomings and the emergence of extremism.”

“I strongly condemn fundamentalism and will work on combating it,” he said.

Moreover, he said that should he be elected president, he will see that the Lebanese state commits to international resolutions and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

“The state alone is responsible for protecting Lebanon and the Lebanese people and confronting various Israeli assaults,” stressed the LF leader, while demanding that the border with Syria be demarcated.

Following the announcement of Geagea's presidential program, LF MPs Antoine Zahra and Jospeh Maalouf visited President Michel Suleiman to hand him a copy of the program, reported LBCI television.

Earlier, an LF parliamentary delegation headed to Bkirki for talks with Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi.

MP Sethrida Geagea confirmed after handing the patriarch a copy of the program that the LF bloc will take part in the April 23 parliamentary session to elect a new president.

FT bro, I am duty bound to toe FC's position. Geagea is not alone in this crime syndicate, Aoun, Nasrallah, Berri, Jumblat, Frangieh, in fact all the old fixture is in it, sharing a cake that is not theirs anyway. HA did not liberate my South on its own, we kept our doors for them, day and night, we took the blows en masse and never once even complaining. I will not delve what Aoun did, but as far as I know, he never stood alone, yet left those who stood with him on their own and dashed away when the going got too tough. If I was Aoun, I would have stayed, even if it meant death. As FC rightly pointed out, we have something called justice, but it is applied only on the poor and the honest, simple. The rest lives above the law, flaunting it at every single turn.

Look Roar, just one scenery: Imagine you or I or any normal citizen for that matter, we did something illegal, no matter how trivial it may be, would we get past it? Now for all the above people I mentioned, can you deny for one moment that they usurped all boundaries of the law, yet nothing befell them? In fact nothing, they are still there living in sinful opulence and decadency, when you and I and all the rest have to sweat it out to make a decent living. All I am saying is simple ya Roar, these people are not above the law, and because they lived and still live above it, makes them worthy and same of one basket, the trash bin of history.

Hezbollah has NO plans for Lebanon except fight takfiris and fight Israel and free palestine and BS. Their only plans are to safeguard Hezbollah interests deeply vested in illegal trafficking.

Aoun's plans are to become president without any obstacles or competitors. He also only tackles issues such as "OIL" whenever he needs to divert the publics attention from the atrocities Hezbollah is committing !

But we want neither Geagea nor Aoun for president !

Thumb -phoenix1 16 April 2014, 15:12

Southern, I believe that almost all of the Lebanese want to see Hezbollah continue to exist, but purely as a political party just like all the rest and not one with an armed wing. Imagine if the LF masalan was a political party with a military wing, or the A7rar, or in fact any other party, what would that spell? I also believe that most Lebanese have remained steady with their demand, that Hezbollah return to the fold, disarm, and continue as a party, not as a militia. The way you put it gives the impression that the majority prefer HA as it it, when the truth is more like, yes for HA, but no weapons, no militia, just a party, like the rest.

Thumb FlameCatcher 16 April 2014, 15:28

Most Lebanese want Hezbollah to surrender their weapons though. That's the difference you don't understand.

Geagea, as Beiruti wrote last week, is just posturing to derail Aoun's prospects for the presidency, and as far as meets the eye, Aoun's chances seem to be ruined. No one at this stage knows for sure what is being played out in the corridors of power, well here at least Bkerke and Baabda, so in most likelihoods, it's quite possible that our next president will be someone who right now is not in the limelight.

The last time Lebanon had to rebuild it was in 1991 in the wake of Taif. Hariri led the effort and because of the "realities" of the security situation with the Syrian occupation at the time, forged ahead with economic recovery on the assumption that the political security of the country would follow. Well, 20 years later here we are starting over again precisely because the State has not been made secure so as to make for a secure economic environment.

Geagea's plans are fine, but with Hezbollah running about unchecked and having de facto control of the country in competition with the state, Geagea would have the same challenges as Rafiq Hariri and without the wallet that Hariri had to buy some peace. The Syrian air force is bombing Arsal today because its victories along the Damascus Homs Corridor has pushed the Opposition west into Hermel and Baalbek and the Regime forces have followed them there. The Syrian war is being prosecuted across Lebanon's borders because Hezbollah unilaterally decided it was their "duty" to defend the Assad Regime. What of their duty to Lebanon?? It does not exist because Hezbollah is not of Lebanon, in fact, is existence on Lebanese soil in derogation of the Lebanese State.

FT and Roar: what has this man said that infuriates you? We have listened to your broken record every time Geagea speaks, do you have anything constructive to contribute or are you going continuer with your insults and hatred? Get over it, as for a strong president I believe that Carlos Eddie would make a fine president, refining his linguistic skills will also help.

FT an eye for an eye keeps the whole world blind.

Have a good evening.

Hahahaha... these Iranian propagandists are so afraid of Geagea that they spend all day on Naharnet posting propaganda trying to discredit him.

Obviously Geagea scares the hell out of them.

Pathetic losers.

Can someone explain to me that out of 27 different screen names that post pro-Hezbollah comments here, but not one of them admits to being a Shia??? They are all either "atheist" or "Christian".

Seems weird huh?

Soon one of these Taqiya spreaders will say they are against Geagea, but not pro-Hezbollah. Yeah, sure, sure, we believe you!

Just like the Taqiya-Thrower who always defends Assad, but then says he is not pro-Assad. (His pet excuse is to say that Assad is better than cannibal-takfiri-zionist, instead of admitting he is pro-butcher Assad)

to all the haters out there, you can spill your hatred as much as you want, that won't change a thing... the people who have brains and know what this man brings to the table won't be convinced by bunch of yahoos. Just for once, discuss the content, but alas, what to expect frum M8 idiots.

no freedom of speech on terror media al manar. this is what he wants for Lebanon, even though he lives in Australia and enjoys his western freedom

The Syrians used every party and religion in Lebanon to divide and conquer them. When I say every I meant Shia, Druze, Christians and Sunni. When you see that fact thé hu will realize it was called Russian to Ukraine today or Syrian hegemony.
