We believe in the utmost importance of the concept of freedom. And we uphold personal and public freedoms, including freedom of belief, thought and expression of own’s opinion. However, we believe that respect for others is also a dire necessity to maintain a healthy society.
We believe citizenship is built by strengthening the relationship between the citizens and their homeland by obtaining their rights and fulfilling their obligations, and by promoting a sense of patriotism.
Democracy and Accountability
The people are the source of authority and the origin of legitimacy of the governing bodies. They have the right to exercise their role through elections that must be periodic and transparent, and to ensure accountability.
We believe that sovereignty is the most comprehensive expression of the State’s authority and responsibility to assume all responsibilities, including the preservation of borders, the maintenance of the Constitution, the application of law and the exclusivity of arms.
The Nonviolent Struggle
We are a people that loves life and rejects violence and knows that our strength lies in our diversity which represents Lebanon’s distinctive culture across the world.
