The Lebanese deal

May 22nd, 2008 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Here are the details of the agreement:

A new thirty member unity-cabinet: 16 chosen by March 14, 11 chosen by the Opposition and 3 chosen by the president.

The use of weapons is banned in internal conflicts (but no decision on the future of Hizbollah’s weapons).

Opposition camps in Downtown Beirut will be dismantled (this happened yesterday).

New electoral law (the “1960 law”), which divides the country into smaller districts – but Beirut is exempt. This is to give Christians a stronger presence.

A new president will be elected this Sunday.
