all right! I've noticed an uncomfortable silence in the Lebanese blogosphere. I don't like it! Elections are over, the intrigues of alliances and electoral match-ups have come to a close. However, the democratic process does not have to stop just because votes have been cast!
In fact, a sense of normalcy can now return to our daily lives. The issues we care about and the ones that affect us can now drive our political activities rather than our preferences for one politician or political grouping. Those of us who are not politicians or cogs in the political machinery of politicians can and should act as members of civil society who hold the entire political class accountable for its actions - no one should be allowed to get off the hook. All must at least feel threatened by accountability: the accountability of the ballot box.
I hope that this Lebanese blogosphere, of which I am a small part, wil contribute to that cause, however marginally.
