While the Constitution can develop, its spirit and soul are certainly sacred – and one of the pillars of our country.Trying to pull the Constitution in a different direction with various interpretations is like stepping into a minefield. Lebanon cannot afford another weight pulling this sinking ship down. In the meantime and in order to be clear about the problem we face, we have to distinguish between politicians who uphold the Constitution – reminding us to stay true to its spirit and soul – and those adamant on twisting facts (and who in most cases have barely read it).
A country in jeopardy
