BEIRUT: President Michel Sleiman Wednesday discussed with legal experts and consultants articles that have yet to be implemented in the Taif Accord, which ended the country’s Civil War. The meeting at Baabda Palace also addressed loopholes that emerged when implementing other articles of the agreement. The Taif Accord transferred some prerogatives from the president to the Cabinet in its collective capacity and redistributed parliamentary seats equally between Muslims and Christians. But some articles in the accord have yet to be implemented, including establishing a committee to abolish political sectarianism in the country and implementing administrative decentralization. Some politicians have called for the amending the Taif Accord, while others call for its proper implementation.
