It is a perfect case study whereby what is said is not what is meant to be told. The urgency for taking any initiative has clouded the existing fundamental political equilibrium between the two coalitions of March 14 and March 8. Somehow, somebody, somewhere, lost his nerves and suggested that Lahoud propose a six-member government representing the country’s six main religions.
Until the day of your proposal, the March 8 coalition classified the government as unconstitutional on the basis that the Shi’a community resigned and is therefore no longer represented in the government. What about the other eleven communities you just proposed to leave behind? The problem with your innovative solution is that the Ta’ef Agreement does not allow you to compose a government excluding any community. However, the Ta’ef Agreement allows the resignation of up to one third of the ministers regardless of the community they belong to.
My question to the 8th of March followers: have you ever read the Ta’ef agreement or the Lebanese constitution? Your leaders assume that you have not and therefore assume they have the luxury to make you swallow any stupidity.
The 8th of March coalition has just shot down the main argument they stood behind when Nasrallah made the unilateral decision to make all Shi’a ministers resign. This coalition is yet to realize that this same bullet has shot Aoun down too.
You just made the perfect mistake.
