Beginning of a ‘new era’ in Lebanon? Friday, 28 October 2016

28/10/2016 (Al Arabiya News – UAE by Nayla Tueni*): Last week, Future Movement leader and MP Saad Hariri endorsed Christian leader Michel Aoun for Lebanon’s presidency. The move has sparked reactions from various quarters. In the wake of this development, we must carefully observe the activities of Ashraf Rifi, who resigned as justice minister. We must also take into account the views of those who oppose this endorsement even though they may be few in number. It is important to do this if we seek to address the worries of some people and the rejections of others voiced through social networking websites. It’s true that these are virtual world campaigns that may not have much to do with reality on the ground. In other words, these voices of dissent may not spill on to the streets but some questions are legitimate and express the views of a wide range of people. What’s interesting is that these objections do not represent what was once called the March 14 coalition as the fiercest objection came from the other party, to what was once called the March 8 coalition…
