While March 8 and March 14 are fighting over what electoral law to adopt in the next elections, and other irrelevant issues to the society’s needs, people are bit by bit starting to hate both parties and willing to support any other independent party who’s ready to address their real needs.
Such options have already started to emerge. I recently heard about a group of businessmen who have formed an NGO called “The Civic Influence Hub” aiming at bringing a social change to Lebanon without getting involved in politics, and just today, a campaign by the National Dialogue Party headed by Fouad Makhzoumi started to make a buzz around Facebook with its slogan being “Khlosna ba2a”, which I guess speaks what a lot of us think about on the current situation of Lebanon with its corrupt politicians and stagnant economy.
This is not the only campaign of its kind we might hear about in the next few weeks, some other similar campaigns might follow and I believe they should be given a chance for at least offering us an alternative to the politicians who have been ruling this country for ever now and have failed miserably at securing our very basic needs.
I mean warlords have been controlling us for decades now, and I only find it logical to give new people a chance to do things differently and maybe bring us the social change that we all are asking for!
