|The Head of the Free Patriotic Movement, MP Michel Aoun stresses that the alternative law to the Orthodox Gathering proposal is the law of single district based on proportional representation.
In an interview with al-Manar TV, MP Aoun called on the Lebanese President, Michel Sleiman, not to utilize from his position, which is refusing the Orthodox law, to press the Constitutional Council.
“The alternative to the Orthodox Gathering Proposal is adopting an electoral law based on single district with the proportional representation,” MP Aoun said during Hadith Sa’aa talk show, conducted by Imad Marmal.
Aoun also noted that the other side was determined to cancel the 2013 election or to delay it.
He said that he was ready to discuss other proposals, but noted that the options were limited.
“They always jump to conclusions and it was a coincidence that we celebrated my birthday the day the Orthodox law was approved,” he clarified.
Talking about threats by the so-called “Free Syrian Army” to Hezbollah, MP Aoun said they were just “void allegations.”
On Ersal incident, Aoun noted that the army unit was ambushed twice, adding that the area there (Ersal) has been witnessing smuggling operations and it must be controlled.
On the Syrian conflict, the FPM leader affirmed that the “regime and the Syrian leadership under the command of President Bashar al-Assad won’t lose the war which has been launched against Syria.”
As he said that the battle ends by making the regime democratic, Aoun condemned the crimes perpetrated by the Takfiris in Syria, noting that these groups have been supported by some Arab and non-Arab countries.
