  • LEBANON: PRESIDENT ELIAS HRAWI GIVEN 3 MORE YEARS IN OFFICE

    Arabic/Nat The Lebanese Parliament has given pro Syrian President Elias Hrawi an unprecedented three more years in office to oversee peace negotiations with Israel and Lebanon's post-war reconstruction. The extension had been widely expected after President Hafez Assad of Syria, the undisputed power in Lebanon, decreed last week that he wanted his close ally, a 68-year-old Maronite Catholic, to stay on as head of state. Hrawi was elected on November 24, 1989, two days after his predecessor, Rene Mouawad, was assassinated with 31 aides and guards in a car-bomb ambush in Beirut after only 17 days in office. His objectives were clearly defined by the deputies present in Parliament. SOUNDBITE:(Arabic) "Everything was decided (the extension of the president's term of office), w...

Hrawi was elected on November 24, 1989, two days after his predecessor, Rene Mouawad, was assassinated with 31 aides and guards in a car-bomb ambush in Beirut after only 17 days in office. His objectives were clearly defined by the deputies present in Parliament. SOUNDBITE:(Arabic) "Everything was decided (the extension of the president's term of office), what we want now is to rearrange the social situation, the management situation, and all the problems we were suffering before." SUPERCAPTION: Deputy Pierre Helou Besides social and economic policies, foreign policy is clearly also on the agenda. SOUNDBITE:(Arabic) "We said it before during the session, first of all we hope that south Lebanon will be soon free of all foreign armed troops, and the arrangement of the social and living situations will be much improved" SUPERCAPTION: Deputy Adnan Traboulsi There is however widespread opposition to the decision - including from the President's own community, the Maronite Christians. Opponents branded the extension a threat to democracy in a country struggling to rise from the ashes of the war. Anti-Syrian leaders in exile denounced the vote as an unwarranted violation of Lebanon's sovereignty by Syria, which has some 40,000 troops controlling most of the country. A protest was banned by the Government. However, Assad's decision to back Hrawi ensured a parliamentary majority well in excess of the two-thirds needed to amend the constitution. Legislators voted 111-10 to amend Article 49 of Lebanon's constitution and provide for the one-time extension five weeks before Hrawi's six-year term expires.

http://boell-meo.org/ The international work of the Heinrich Böll Foundation is geared towards seeking strategic partnerships with others who share our values. We believe in the inherent value of broadening and facilitating active participation of citizens, equal access and rights beyond gender and ethnic or religious affiliations, resolving conflicts peacefully and keeping development sustainable - in Germany and anywhere else in the world. Yet, we are aware that positive change in the direction of these core values has to set out from the realities of the societies we are working with, and that strategies aimed at achieving sweeping changes in a short period of time are often unsustainable or even counterproductive. Moreover, we believe that citizens and social actors are the primary and most important reference point when it comes to the priorities and the pace of such change in their own societies. Hence, our approach focuses on engaging with civil society organizations, civic initiatives and political activists throughout the region. Exchange and dialogue with these partners is the main inspiration for the priorities of our program. Likewise, a significant part of our actual work is lending support - through networking, facilitation and funding - to initiatives and projects conceived by our partners, in response to what they perceive as the pressing needs of their societies. For any foreign organization, coming to the Middle East to promote an agenda for change means navigating troubled waters. Citizens of Arab countries have seen many attempts to bestow achievements of Western civilization upon their region, often with controversial results. Many have concluded that the interests and aspirations of the people who are subjected to such civilizing missions tend to come second at best. Contradicting foreign agendas - such as calling for democracy in one place and supporting repressive regimes next door -, condescending attitudes - such as considering a specifically Western European and North American trajectory of development and democracy as a universal model to be emulated - and the involvement of some Western Powers in the conflicts of the region all contribute to an atmosphere prone to misunderstandings or even resentment. In such an environment, hbf puts a particular emphasis on the general commitment that is guiding its approach to international cooperation: to work with local and regional initiatives on equal terms and in a democratic manner, and to develop and discuss common agendas with partner organizations attuned to local discourses, dynamics and priorities.
