Lebanon’s major events in 2014: Presidential vacuum, Parliament’s extension, Army’s success foiling terror schemes in Tripoli and Arsal

Tue 30 Dec 2014 at 04:09

#

NNA – Presidential vacuum and the extension of the House of Parliament’s tenure are the two main events that rocked Lebanon’s political scene in 2014. At the security level, a number of military men got kidnapped by a group of terrorists after the Lebanese Army succeeded in foiling a terrorist scheme to control Arsal and Tripoli.

At the economic level, the House of Parliament’s failure to ratify the ranks and salary scale sparked pandemonium all across the country, as public school teachers went on open strike and refused to mark official exams.

Food safety in Lebanon had a major share of the state’s interests in 2014, thanks to the relentless efforts of Public Health Minister, Wael Abu Faour, who exposed all the Lebanese restaurants, supermarkets, slaughter houses, and even beauty institutions that did not comply with the required safety standards.
