March 14 Officials Hold Routine Meetings over Presidential Crisisإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
March 14 alliance leaders have been holding “routine meetings” away from the media spotlight to discuss the presidential deadlock, the coalition's officials said.
They told al-Joumhouria newspaper published on Thursday that the leaders are assessing each stage ahead of the expiry of President Michel Suleiman's term on May 25.
The last meeting between them was held at the Center House on Tuesday, the officials, who were not identified, said.
The country's top Christian post will most likely be vacant over the differences between the March 8 and 14 alliances.
But Prime Minister Tammam Salam has said that his government is capable of practicing the authorities of the president in case of a failure to elect a new head of state by May 25.
"his government is capable of practicing the authorities of the president"... what Presidential authority is he talking about? Only the Iranian militia enforces authority in Lebanon, at the point of a gun or a car bomb.
A precondition to have a president accepted by the majority of a society, is that the majority of the society experience and feel that they have equal rights and belong to one nation. Unfortunately this is not the case in Lebanon. No doubt sooner than later a compromise president will be agreed upon ; throughout the history of Lebanon political solutions tackled the symptoms but never the root cause of the problem which is Lebanon has 2 different societies; to solve it ensure to unify them through sound civic education or make 2 Lebanon.
'The country's top Christian post will most likely be vacant over the differences between' top Christians..
Shame on the entire Christian leadership and double shame on the Christian electorate who keep re-electing them for Office.
Thank you and Goodbye
