"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 Won't Accept an Electoral Law that 'Divides Lebanese, Terminates Partnership'- Naharnet

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat stressed Friday that he will not accept any electoral law that "divides the Lebanese."
"An electoral system that divides the Lebanese and terminates partnership and diversity cannot be accepted," Jumblat tweeted.
The PSP leader has rejected the proportional representation system, warning that it would "marginalize" his minority Druze community, whose presence is concentrated in the Aley and Chouf areas.
Hizbullah has repeatedly called for an electoral law fully based on proportional representation and a single or several large electorates.
