DISCONTENT WITH THE LAW ON DELEGATES IN LEBANON
| 18:48:30 | 04-05-2005 | Politics |
This morning Catholicos Aram I had a telephone conversation with
Lebanon President Emil Lahood. The main theme of the conversation was
the “Delegate electoral Code” amended in 2000. Let us remind you that
according to that code the places allotted to the Armenian delegates
in the Lebanon Parliament had been reduced.
Catholicos Aram I expressed his disagreement with the law and said
the one of the main principles of democracy is the participation
of the people in the elections and the right to elect their
representative. The Lebanon President has agreed with the complaint
and informed that a letter has already been sent to the Parliament.
By the way, Catholicos Aram I had represented the same issue in
yesterday’s meeting with the US Ambassador to Lebanon.
