Free Patriotic Movement leader General Michel Aoun went on Kalam al-Nas (the most widely-watched political talk show in Lebanon) last Thursday, and had a long conversation with Marcel Ghanem, the show’s famous host.
The entire interview is available on YouTube in ten-minute installments. You can catch the first one here, and then navigate to the subsequent bits in the sidebar.
Some of the more interesting sections:
Section 2: Discussion of the constitutionality of majority governments, and Ta’if vs. Doha.
Section 6: The defense strategy and Hezbollah’s weapons.
Section 7: The possibility of reform in the electricity sector.
Section 8: Rafiq Hariri’s assassination, and on who will succeed Aoun in the FPM, Christian politics, etc.
Section 10: Aoun explains the steps towards de-confessionalism (i.e. secularization).
Based on Aoun’s hints and allusions, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Free Patriotic Movement and the Future Movement announce a Memorandum of Understanding within the next couple of months.
