Lebanese Parliment

Mr. Speaker, Members of Parliament

In accordance with Article 47 of the Lebanese Constitution, we bring this petition to your attention so that you apply the spirit and letter of the Constitution in order to end the prolonged vacancy at the head of the State. Our Constitution requires Parliament to "meet immediately and as of right" to elect the President (Art. 74), and requires each of you to "proceed immediately with the election of the Head of State without any discussion, or any other matter." (Art. 75).

We therefore request from every deputy that he fulfills as of right (Art. 73), without delay (Art. 74), and immediately (Art. 75), his or her constitutional duty to elect the head of state.

You will find enclosed the Constitutional declaration in which Humanist Lebanon develops the argument of the present petition. We join its signatories with the determination to bring to an end the country’s persistent deadlock resulting from the lack of enforcement of clear constitutional texts.
