Suleiman Calls for Modern Electoral Law that Improves Democratic Performance


President Michel Suleiman said Saturday that the improvement of the country’s democratic performance should start by the adoption of a modern electoral law.

Suleiman told delegations visiting him at his summer residence in Beiteddine palace that the electoral law should provide the right representation to all Lebanese and their right role in decision making.

“The right representation facilitates governance at all levels and gives each person his right,” he said. “Lebanon has a lot of strengths which help make its democracy an example to other democracies.”

A good democratic system is what the world is searching for today, Suleiman added.

The president returns to Baabda palace on Saturday afternoon after a one-month stay in Beiteddine, his office said.

Irrelevant figure head in a country controlled by the Mobs of Iran. No dignified politician with a grain of principles would accept to run lebanon under these conditions.
