Amid all the electoral promises being made during this month, asking or promising to light up the Matn Express Highway, a crucial road linking Matn’s coast with its mountains, is probably the biggest electoral scam we’ve encountered so far. I am sure there are tons of other scandalous promises popping left and right, but this is the one I could relate to the most, given how many times I’ve taken that road and how hazardous it is day and night.

I don’t care who’s doing or to which party he/she belongs, but this is beyond scandalous. I lost count of how many accidents and incidents took place on that road, on how many tragedies occurred there without any actions being taken. Just google “اوتوستراد المتن السريع” and you’ll see for yourself the results from years of negligence.
