Lebanese Council of Ministers holds session prior to elections

Beirut, May 12 (Prensa Latina) The Lebanese Council of Ministers on Thursday held the last working session prior to the Sunday parliamentary elections.

The meeting discussed financial and legal matters under the supervision of President Michel Aoun, and in the presence of Prime Minister Najib Mikati and government officials.

According to the agenda, the meeting approved a decree aimed at organizing the Public Housing Institution and determining its owners and conditions for use.

The cabinet also analyzed the transfer of the Ministry of the Displaced to the Ministry of Rural Development, as well as the renewal of expired passports to participate only in this Sunday’s elections.

An agreement with the United Nations Resident Coordinator in Lebanon was also reviewed, to establish the framework of cooperation for the 2023-2025 sustainable development.

This nation is currently experiencing a devaluation of the Lebanese pound against the US dollar, high prices in fuel, medicines and basic needs that today place four out of five citizens in poverty, according to the United Nations.

This Sunday, May 15, nearly four million Lebanese citizens are eligible to vote for their 128 representatives of a legislature equally divided between Christians and Muslims.
