U.S. President Barak Obama addresses Lebanese Election results

09Jun09

It is our sincere hope that the next government will continue along the path towards building a sovereign, independent and stable Lebanon,” Obama said in a statement.

 “Government of the people and by the people sets a single standard for all who hold power: you must maintain your power through consent, not coercion.

“The high turnout and the candidates — too many of whom know personally the violence that has marred Lebanon — are the strongest indications yet of the Lebanese desire for security and prosperity

“Once more, the people of Lebanon have demonstrated to the world their courage and the strength of their commitment to democracy. Commitment to these principles of peace and moderation are the best means to secure a sovereign and prosperous Lebanon.”
