Can Lebanon's elections get the country out of crisis? – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Lebanon, a country in crisis with about 80% of its people living in poverty, according to the UN, will go to the polls on Sunday.

The capital, Beirut, still bears the scars of the devastating port explosion that killed more than 200 people in August 2020.

The mood is fragile, hurting, and desperate. Many Lebanese people accuse the country’s political leaders of failing to tackle its deep problems and many more leaving the country.

But can this election deliver the change they need?

NO!
Not as long as ideology plays a major role and the land is under occupation.
The latest words from the Iranian puppet, Nasrallah, were;
"I dare you ALL try and take away the Iranian Islamic resistance weapons from me".

They should all vote on May 13, 2022 instead of sacrificing with their lives. Change will come if they try to be active in the upcoming elections.
