Wed 12 Sep 2018 at 19:55 Politics
NNA - Caretaker Interior Minister, Nouhad Machnouk, on Wednesday called for the amendment of the current electoral law, saying the door is open to modify points deemed as "weak" by all the Lebanese parties.

The Minister of the Interior was speaking at the launch of the Book "Elections of the Lebanese Parliament 2018", under the patronage of House Speaker Nabih Berri.

The Book was all set by the international company for information.

"The current law, despite my objections from the beginning on the proportional approach rather than proportionality principle, has allowed all the Lebanese and faith communities to feel influential and in attendance", he corroborated.

However, the Minister noted that certain loopholes in said law must be addressed before the next legislative polls' date.
