So what exactly is wrong with such a varied government. Except that President Aoun can not control it.

Michel Aoun is a miserable failure.

‘Greek orthodox’ ‘Greek Catholics’ ‘Armenians and minorities’

These denominations must cease to exist ! Are they Lebanese or Greek/Armenians? Is there such a thing as Turkish or Kurdish Sunnis or Iraqi Shias in our elections?
