"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

President Michel Aoun on Thursday signed a key decree opening an extraordinary legislative session and announced that the country will have a new and “balanced” electoral law in the “coming days.”
The decree also carried the signature of Prime Minister Saad Hariri and was inked a few hours before an annual Ramadan iftar banquet at the Baabda Palace that was attended by Speaker Nabih Berri, MP Walid Jumblat, Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea and a host of political, religious and social figures.
The decree stipulates that the session will begin on June 7 and end on June 20 and that it will be “exclusively limited to the approval of a new electoral law.”
