I think the whole world knows by now that Lebanese politicians are a joke, yet the Lebanese parliament seems adamant to show to what extent they’ve become incompetent and negligent.
The below is a leaked page from the memo that supposedly was sent to be published in the Official Gazette, detailing the reasons behind postponing the municipal elections. In Point 9 in the memo, the authors used an “Egyptian” joke to describe the state that the municipalities are in, knowing that there’s nothing that justifies not holding these elections.
I guess they already knew that, and thought they’d buy time with a joke …
The Official Gazette should be published next week, and in normal circumstances, those behind this shameless memo should be help accountable.
