On central administration (Highlights)

  • We refuse for the elected local council's prerogatives to remain ink on paper;
  • We want for these prerogatives to act with due respect to people's will.
  • We want to end the mandate with achieving a fair work within the municipalities, so authority doesn't become tyranny;
  • We want to distinguish between politics and development;
  • We want to be partners in serving people; no governance, no governed!
  • We mainly focused on providing 445 billion to municipalities and municipal unions.
  • In August 2001, an understanding agreement was signed between the ministry of interior and municipalities and the legal studies center in New York / Albany and the U.S Agency for international development, which stipulates a technical support program for Lebanese local authorities until May 2004.
  • Considering the importance and the independence of the local administration role, I declare the 23rd of September of each year the "Municipality's day" in Lebanon.
  • As we want the municipal law to be revolutionary, we also want the electoral law to be modern and bold, to annihilate denominational and secular differences, in order to achieve true participation and protect unity and mutual coexistence, and put an end to extremism and suicidal tentatives.
  • We need representatives "from" all denominations and secularisms not "for" denominations and secularisms.
  • The government should protect freedom and keep it under the law because the law is the only separator between freedom and chaos.
  • To respect law is to respect freedom!
