"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 Suggests Cabinet Vote on Proportional Representatio Naharnet

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on Monday called for a vote in Cabinet on the proportional representation electoral system.
“Unfortunately, today we are facing a host of bad options: extension (of parliament's term), which is rejected and would deal a blow to the new presidential tenure; the 1960 law which would be considered a failure for the new presidential tenure..., or vacuum which is rejected by everyone,” Geagea said.
He was speaking during a Maarab ceremony to announce the candidacy of LF member Antoine Habshi for the Baalbek-Hermel Maronite parliamentary seat.
Geagea added that a “simple solution” would be to vote in Cabinet on the electoral law.
