One of the hottest topics after any elections that take place in Lebanon is which party received the highest number of supporters from the Christian community. This topic normally takes months and months of arguments among parties and can easily become the source of a huge conflict in many topics within the upcoming four years.
This year, I decided to take the task of nailing down all numbers,
grouping them, calculating totals and averages right when the elections
finished with fresh numbers and figures still available.
Up until this day, all previous and current Lebanese governments and parliament members have failed to put in place a national standard for digital signatures. The process is not hard, not vague, not tedious and – for sure – not dangerous. Digital Signatures are already approved as national standards in all digitally-active countries except in Lebanon despite the fact that Lebanon is a digitally-active country.
Today, I received an email from Mr. Ziad Baroud, the Minister of
Internal Affairs, asking me to check my listing on the DGPS website.
While the majority would like the fact that Mr. Baroud is using a
one-to-one communication method to reach as much Lebanese citizens as
possible, I did not like the fact that Mr. Baroud is encouraging
spammers to send out such emails.
