Head of Change and Reform bloc, MP Michel Aoun, told a TV interview on Wednesday that the consecutive election laws prevented people from rotating power.
“The election laws do not allow people to choose power rotation,” he said, upon the 11th commemoration of the Syrian troops’ retreat from Lebanon.
Aoun explained that the present poll laws aimed to provide the ruling majority in 1992.
“The majority produced in 2009 seeks to remain in power, albeit it has lost the trust of the public opinion,” he remarked, adding that that majority also seeks to control the election of a president, “even though it is unconstitutional.”
“If partnership and power balance are not ensured, Lebanon will be facing a great danger,” he warned.
“I am afraid independence would go to waste,” he said.
“Some are still seeking a western or even eastern custody to allow the election of s president,” he concluded.
