Lebanon still suffers from a presidential vacuum as it marks its 72nd Independence Day this week. The country is like an old man no longer capable of keeping up with ordinary life. State institutions’ work is almost at a standstill, there has been no president since 2014, the government is paralyzed, and parliament only convenes when necessary. Meanwhile, people suffer as problems such as the trash crisis remain unsolved.
Electing a president restores regularity to the work of institutions that have lost citizens’ trust. The cabinet has failed to resolve the trash crisis due to sectarian divisions. Political bickering and pre-conditions continue. One party names a candidate, another vetoes him.
