This is now utterly besides the original point, but I'm very confident you're aware that sawt tafdili and votes for the whole list are not the same. Alliances are how you do politics. You're welcome to scoff at it though, I hope the weather's nice up there on your horse. Plus, each Kullunai Watani list had many different parties/independents represented. I don't think I need to remind anyone how hated Hezb Sab3a was among many independents. But they're the ones who managed to break a candidate through, so it was shrewd to put them on the list.
I have no idea what you're blabbering about. Alliances make sense if there's agreement on substance and an electoral platform. Mish 3tini zelmak ta a3tik zelmi. Only in Lebanon byenzalo ma3 ba3d w did ba3d in the same elections. Seems like you have issues Jeyi tnaffis 3laya. Get that chip off your shoulder.

    Shrewd alliances to gain votes = good
    Politicking = good
    And getting more than 45k votes requires engaging in those things, not thumbing our noses at it, as you did!

    Anyway, feel free to interpret all of that as you wish and toss around ad homs!! Have a nice weekend :)

    He's a teacher by heart and profession, as well as an expert on his topic.

    He's doing an excellent job educating and shedding light on the problems that we have in banking system today and he, like PMA, will be remembered as those who made it possible to talk about these things which were largely ignored pre-2015.

    He does have a socialist approach (doubt its communism), but is that bad for Lebanon ? I think if our problems become choosing between socialists and capitalists, he would have succeeded in his mission ;)

    In my opinion, he's an idealist so its complicated to have him in a government that does't have zero constraints.

    when i first heard about Charbel Nahas, I had the same idea, that he's too idealistic, but then he handled the Ministry of telecommunications and he did an amazing job (and it was during the days of Abdel Men3em youssef who was blocking everything)

    If you check Wikipedia, you can see that he is perfect for this job

    "Much of his work has centered around Lebanon's macroeconomic situation, in particular its sovereign debt, which Nahas has maintained is unsustainable. He is also the author of A Socioeconomic Programme for Lebanon, which was published by the Lebanese Center for Policy Studies in March 2006"
    "Sources indicated that one of the factors that led the FPM to nominate Nahas was to participate in ongoing discussions in relation to the annual state budget and the national debt, which are priority issues for the FPM."
    Yes this was during the good old days of the FPM :)

    The only person/party who gets credit for bringing back budget and allowing the accountability to happen is FPM and Michel Aoun.

    Putting aside the other problems and questionable behavior
