President of Universal Syriac Union Party in Lebanon Ibrahim Mrad: Federalism is the solution in Lebanon

BEIRUT — President of the Universal Syriac Union Party in Lebanon (USUP) Ibrahim Mrad via Facebook stated that federalism is the solution in Lebanon.

Since 2013 so far, federal organizations were established and conferences were organized calling for implementing federalism in Lebanon. They all aimed to develop the system in Lebanon and transform it from a corrupt central system into a modern system that preserves the rights of people and establishes justice.

“We aimed to reach a system through which we maintain safety and peace, so that the relation between the ethnic components of the pluralistic Lebanese society be based on mutual respect,” said Mrad. “Because respect is the core of human values that we seek to consolidate with true coexistence, through federalism to preserve this pluralism.”
