Talking of reservations

My inability to zero-in on the reasons behind my recent spate of most uninteresting posts in this blog's history notwithstanding, this is interesting.

Talking of reservations, try and beat this.

The National Pact is an unwritten agreement that laid the foundation of Lebanon and has shaped the country to this day. Following negotiations between the Shi'ite, Sunni, and Maronite leaderships, the National Pact was born in the summer of 1943 allowing Lebanon to be independent. Among the following key points of the agreement are:

  • the President of the Republic to always be a Maronite.

  • the President of the Council of Ministers (prime minister) to always be a Sunni.

  • the President of the National Assembly to always be a Shi'ite.

P.S: Look out for brighter days in a while. Come the monsoon, cometh the posts.
