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.
“The most important thing is political stability. For example we can tackle the full proportional representation law that has been proposed by the other camp, on the condition that we vote on its details in Cabinet. This is the only solution left,” the LF leader said.
