"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. "

Geagea: No Return to 1960 Law despite Dangerous Aoun-Berri Clash- Naharnet

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea stressed Tuesday that there will be no return to the 1960 electoral law despite what he described as a “dangerous political clash” between President Michel Aoun and Speaker Nabih Berri.
“No matter how much things aggravate and no matter how much political disputes intensify , including the dangerous (Aoun-Berri) political clash, there will be no return to the 1960 law,” Geagea said in an interview with the al-Markazia news agency.
He reassured that “ninety-five percent” of the latest electoral law proposal – proportional representation in 15 districts – has been finalized and “the remaining 5% will not be an obstacle.”
“We will exert all efforts possible” to secure a final agreement on the proposal, Geagea vowed.
