and then reneged after a Syria-Chris-
tian confrontation in April, told repor-
ters Sarkis was still "insisting on his
step." The president told political
leaders that if he is not given the power
to govern effectively he would resign.
MOST OBSERVERS believe his
resignation at this time would create a
dangerous political vacuum that could
spark even wider hostilities. There is no
other political figure believed to be ac-
ceptable to both Christian and Moslem
parliamentarians, who would have the
task of finding a replacement.
The darker speculation among ob-
servers is that the vacuum might be
filled by a military coup, led by
rightists, or a Syrian putsch.
To stay in office, Sarkis wants con-
cessions from both the Syrians and the
Lebanese rightists who have defied
Syria's efforts to extend its control into
Christian areas.
He would like a "redefinition" of the
peacekeeping role of the predominantly
Syrian deterrent force that polices the
armistice which ended the 1975-76
Lebanese civil war. And he wants
political leaders to give him a mandate
to curb the activity of their private
militias, which outnumber and outgun
the Lebanese army.
