Baydoun: Ready to be speaker backed by March 14
A+ A-

BEIRUT: A former MP voiced Thursday his readiness to become Parliament speaker if the March 14 coalition favored it. Mohammad Abdel-Hamid Baydoun, an anti-Hezbollah and Amal Shiite politician, said change was needed regarding the representation of the Shiite sect. Speaking to two Arab magazines, Baydoun said the monopolization of the political representation of a certain sect was a prelude to civil war. “When a sect becomes a military barracks, this means we started a civil war with other sects.” He added that campaigns which he said Hezbollah and Amal are launching against independent Shiite politicians aim at hiding the two groups’ failure. A former official at the Amal Movement, Baydoun has taken part in many rallies organized by the March 14 coalition.
