Elections 2018 : Afterthoughts

My thoughts after the elections 2018:

  • What will we do with all the billboards? A good idea is creating tents for refugees or giving them to Waste (the startup that creates furniture and bags from recyclable wastes/ billboards)

 

  • Will we get more women representatives in the parliament? A good idea is to have less female candidates but more powerful and credible ones, supported by other women who want to be involved with politics.

 

  • Can we please have more power in the civil society instead of having random humans and how about the civil society starts their marketing campaigns from now and not a month before the elections? These extremely sophisticated men with no charisma can never prove a point when discussing life-threatening issues with Hezbollah men. The civil society needs a better representation.

 

  • Voting for a political party because of fear of becoming minorities, will it ever stop? Having a secular system is far fetched but it is the only way we can evolve, especially that the parliament is hugely divided and lobbying is not letting any politician solve anything.

 

  • If you want change, can you vote next time? Change is not the future. Change was two days ago, but now it is the future again. In 4 years, will we have more people who really care about Lebanon?

 

Finally, I hope those political parties who won actually plan a better Lebanon and not just a better future for his own grand children and children.
