Protesters want an end to religion in politics


Published

About 9,000 protesters marched in Beirut over the weekend calling for an end to the political system in the country which splits up posts between the political factions.

There are 18 religious groups in Lebanon and the current constitution requires the president to be a Maronite Christian, the prime minister a Sunni Muslim and the speaker a Shiite Muslim.
