It’s both sad and funny to see so many people upset and disappointed with the new government and the new taxes being imposed. Back when they elected a new president, a lot of people were also very optimistic and saw change coming our way, just like we did with almost every new president we had in the past 30 years. I still remember the songs that came out when Lahoud was elected LOL!

In all cases, electoral reform is critical for any meaningful change and accountability is even more important but both are not going to happen any time soon. Just look at the ongoing electoral law debate and how they’re shaping it to satisfy every party’s needs with total disregard to the voter.
