Next week is full of parliamentary constitutional entitlements and protests

In Parliament, the declared and unannounced consultations continue between the political parties and the parliamentary blocs, to determine the deputies’ options in the session devoted to electing the speaker, his deputy, and the body of the office.

Protest movements in more than one sector will not be far from the date of the parliamentary session. The judicial assistants announced that they would stop attending all palaces of justice from Monday for a week.
The Constituent Assembly of the Mechanical Inspection Workers and Employers Union, in turn, announced the implementation of a peaceful sit-in on Monday in front of the Ministry of the Interior and Municipalities, in rejection of the decision to cancel the mechanical inspection.

In addition, the Syndicate of Hospital Owners called on the Prime Minister and each of the Ministers of Labor and Interior in the caretaker government, to intervene with the Banque du Liban and the Association of Banks, to solve the problem of hospitals from using their accounts in banks, in order to avoid a closure scenario, or for the patient to pay the full cost of hospitalization.
Lebanon, then, is at a new parliamentary crossroads, amidst the protest movements. Will it resonate in the parliament rooms, or will the deputies legislate their first law, which is ignorant of them, indifferent or concerned with what is happening with the Lebanese?
