Issuing a law for municipal and parliamentary elections

The government, with its legislative powers, would issue parliamentary and municipal electoral laws. Voting would be on the basis of actual residence, and each voter in the parliamentary elections would have the right to choose to be directly represented by non-sectarian candidates or to be represented by candidates belonging to sectarian systems. Seats would be divided between the direct (non-sectarian) and the sectarian representation based on the people’s choice during the election. The laws would preserve sectarian distribution, or sectarian balance as they call it, among those elected on a sectarian basis.
