Geagea Warns Against "One-Party State"

Lebanese Forces' boss Sameer Geagea warned against a Hizbullah-Syrian-led "one-party state"-of a March 8 making. Geagea, who implored Lebanese president Michel Sleiman to desist from decreeing the setting up of such a government, stated apprehension about traits of the upcoming phase being already drawn.

According to Geagea, Syro-Hizbullah one party state notion might as well clash with those upheld by both president and prime minister-designate.

Despite Jumblatt's defection to the Syro-Iranian camp, Geagea persisted in seeing in March 14 a coherent-cohesive movement particularly when it comes to joining a Miqati-led cabinet or not. He commended March 14 leaders for their continued organizational coordination during an interview on Voice of Free Lebanon radio station today.

Geagea failed however to disclose March 14 intended moves on Hariri's 5th assassination anniversary saying LF and allies strived to draw some sort of balance between the anniversary and current March 14 political agendas.

Meanwhile, Minister of Social Affairs Salim Sayegh said Saturday to Voice of Lebanon-Voice of Freedom and Dignity radio station that deliberations between President Amine Gemayel and PM-designate Najib Mikati were underway, and he hoped that the new cabinet would be one of national unity.

"We better not be divided once the indictment is issued," said Sayegh in reference to the new cabinet line-up, fearing that if Lebanese were not united, then the indictment would be used at a tool of political sabotage. At times of political instability, one cannot but lament the downfalls of Taef Accord, which limited the prerogatives of the President, such as dissolving Parliament or interfering in cabinet formation. "No change should affect the President's ability to control the political calendar," he added.

The Minister explained that talks between President Amine Gemayel and Mikati were still ongoing, "We need answers from PM Mikati…and once President Gemayel is convinced with the results...he will convince his allies in March 14 to participate in the government."

Sayegh concluded that freedom and democracy always prevailed in the end, and that the best solution to the current crisis was through dialogue with PM Mikati.
