Will Lebanon get Civil-ized?
The Lebanese sphere has been buzzing with the news since yesterday, but the headline is only half the story; “The request is now in the hands of the Consultations Committee at the Ministry of the Interior pending its official announcement.”
I will only declare this a win when the papers are approved by the Ministry of Interior … call me a pessimist, but with disgrace like the “Orthodox Electoral Law” gaining monumental support across political factions in this dismal country, i can expect alot of bullshit rejections and obstacles to spur up in this process of approving any form of intermarriage between humans-carrying-different-pendants-on-their-necks in Lebanon.
Nonetheless i congratulate Lawyer Talal Husseini for discovering yet another loop-hole in the system 😉
