Lebanese political analyst exposes central Lebanon problem (video)



Dr Rami Rayess, a well-known journalist and professor of politics, is knowledgeable about the complexity of Lebanese politics, which he openly shared with 961News in an interview.

“The more we are divided as Lebanese, the more we should expect intervention from foreign powers,” he said of these political interventions in the country, which had been an ongoing phenomenon.

He describes the country as an “arena of international and regional influences” and denounces this situation as one of the reasons for the lack of development in Lebanon.

Discussion continues on the Taif Accord, which was signed in 1989 and was known to have succeeded in ending the fifteen year Lebanese civil war.

Nevertheless, he failed to resolve the political denominational system, which “allowed sectarian forces to assert their interests at the cost of the national interest of the country,” according to Dr Rayess, who is also the adviser of the President of the Progressive Socialist Party (PSP), Walid Joumblatt.

Political sectarianism is today the major problem in Lebanon and constitutes a crucial obstacle for a united and developed country.

For Dr Rayess, the solution lies in the correct implementation of the Taif Accord, which has never been fully and effectively executed.

Finally, he evokes the failed state and describes the economic situation as “a possible starting point for the Lebanese people to unite.

He explains that “the socio-economic sphere could be a common denominator for all the Lebanese, who have the same difficulties” therefore having common objectives. which will be a factor of unity.
