People and President… A missing relationship in Lebanon

President Bashir Gemayel Square. The president around whom the Lebanese street was divided during his life, before his death and after. September is the anniversary of his assassination.
In September, after forty years, the entitlement to the presidential elections is renewed.
The first entiltement is at the level of position, and the last at the level of powers.
There is a direct relationship between Bashir and the Lebanese in conscience, whether it is good or bad.
However, the presidential elections are not directly related to the Lebanese people, like other elections.
Within Parliament, that is, the People’s Assembly, as it is supposed to be, a session to elect a President of the Republic. This is in shape. As for the content, it is a session of maneuvering between political parties belonging to external axes and others who are independent, who do not collectively constitute the preferential voice that brings a president of the republic.
A president who will be praised by many, because the hell of the era of his predecessor burned the country and people at all levels.
The Lebanese aged before time. Many of them changed their situation for the worse. Retirement is impossible for many elderly people. Some of them lean on a bond to cross over from life, and some of them wait quietly to leave it.
While preoccupied with the pillars of the system maneuvers to win the share of the Presidency of the Republic.
The majority of the people are preoccupied with fighting collapse to obtain their daily share of power, a picture that achieves the scene of complete separation between the ruler and the ruled, a scene whose indicators do not bode well for breakthroughs in the foreseeable future.
