"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Jumblat Says Proportional Representation Must Preserve 'Partnership'- Naharnet

Druze leader MP Walid Jumblat on Sunday renewed his reservations over the proportional representation electoral system, noting that he would back such a law only if it preserves an accepted level of “partnership.”
“The best thing is clarity. Yes to proportional representation that achieves the minimum requirements of partnership and no to a proportional representation law that leads to divorce and isolation,” Jumblat tweeted.
“Enough with the outsmarting attempts and our patience is very long,” he added.
Jumblat has repeatedly rejected proportional representation, warning that it would “marginalize” his minority Druze community, whose presence is concentrated in the Chouf and Aley districts.
