Geagea: Elections Require Neutral Government

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea congratulated on Sunday the Lebanese people on the occasion of Easter, saying that they received a “small gift” on the occasion which was the government's resignation.

He told Free Lebanon radio: “The elections should not be canceled and they require a neutral government that can ensure that they are held.”

This government should include economic experts who can address the poor economic situation in the country, he proposed.

He revealed that caretaker Prime Minister Najib Miqati may be named as premier-designate.

Geagea added that tensions in Lebanon will likely be eased given the government's resignation.

The cabinet resigned on March 22 after it failed to approve the formation of the authority to oversee the elections and agree on extending the term of former Internal Security Forces chief Ashraf Rifi, who handed the ISF leadership to Brigadier General Roger Salem on Saturday.

Rifi will turn 59 – the ISF’s maximum working age – on April 1. Salem will serve as acting head of the ISF until a new director general is appointed.

No Freespirit, there can only be a legitimate resistance if you are fighting Israel or america, our brotherly arsab brothers are our friends and you cant resist them even if they killed our men & raped our women (which they did worse then any americn or israeli) but even then, the resistance must ONLY be formed of SHIAAAAA people or it is a terrorist group in their eyes

Arrest ? Arrest who Maroun ? You mean to tell me that you want to arrest your case , let me give you an advice Maroun , don't smoke pot with the shisha , it makes you look and sound stupid ! Get off your computer and stop debating , go to bed , you can't even write and think at the same time , your too drowsy and drugged out man !!!

Gaegae is a traitor, always has been always will be!

Josh. Christians did not loose demographically because they resisted the syrian stalinist regime of Assad. They offer sacrificed and resisted. And if anyone messes with christians again, they will arm themselves and resist.
Christians, united, were able to beat assad's strong army that al nosra is finding very hard to beat. And christians will be able to beat any army that threaten them. Dont take their gentlemenship for weakness.
We dont need the baathist regime. The BAATHIST REGIME IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL. Way more than Israel, way more than the islamists.

Lebanon can never have a neutral government as long as Isreal threatens invasion,controls your airspace and occupies your land . The hope of any neutrality is further complicated because March 14 will not accept that they do not have the majority. March 14 is for all practical purposes collaborating with the enemy (Isreal not Hezbollah)to stay in the good graces of the USA and Saudi Arabia.. So forget histoty, forget the criminality of the previous governments and let Harari be Prime Minister again to make it easier for Isreal to attack and kill your citizens. Is that what GeaGea calls neutrality? Yes, Hezbollah is Lebanese, Their folly is that they believe they should have the right to defend themselves against Isreal.Is that Treason? Treason to who?

Taef gave more power for Sunni and Shia alike as the balance of power was too much in favor of Christians before that.

When an accusation is leveled against someone, I always consider the source. And in your case, I agree, Gaegae is an Iranian and Syrian traitor but a Lebanese patriot. The one who was put in solitary confinement for 11 years by Assad's Syria is a traitor, but the one who thanked the Syrian army for their occupation is not...... strange logic.

Thumb LEBhasNOhope 01 April 2013, 05:38

Better yet, the one who visited Syria and stated there were no Lebanese prisoners there is a patriot?

So he blew up churches, and killed people.
Do you have proof?, is that what Bashaar told you?.
Every man and his dog know who planted the bombs inside the churches. You guys make me laugh.

Gaegae is the only obstacle to HA's full control over Lebanon and the sole obstacle to Aoun becoming president.

So, get it into your thick heads. HA will never control Lebanon and Aoun will never become president.

Funny how those FPMers and HAers keep on attacking Geagea for his past actions and never lay one arguement on his current statements and actions. Yet they start barking and jumping the minute anyone attacks Aoun for his past and current actions.
Stupidity runs deep within those parties ...

wow although not a follower of either Ja3ja3 or W.J. the responses seem to be realy the most intense when it comes to WJ or Ja3ja3? I wonder if they both create the most amount of hate for Iranians and their puppets in the circuse here?.
Iran must realy feel threatened by the sounds of some responsed here....

The reason for so much intense comments here. Jumblat or Geagea are the worst of all for Lebanon, the rest are not any better. With all fairness, Jumblatt didn't kill his own sect. You might say that was the past, but they are still there as leaders. I have friends who lost their homes and all, for Geagea's venture in the chouf and Sidon area, and lost it to Jumblat's thugs. Yet they still vote for Georgie and Jumblatt like nothing happened. Makes you wonder, if they are considered normal. But if one of their own family screwed them, they will never forgive or forget. Hope KSA is not threatened by my comment.
