To the majority* of the Lebanese politicians currently** in office, to the Lebanese people, and to all whom the following may concern.
Nicolas Sehnaoui, current Lebanese Minister of Telecommunication, posted on Twitter the following question:
I answered all your questions. Now your turn to answer mine: If you were a Minister in the Lebanese gov what would be your first decision?

I wanted to reply to his question with something cynical and snarky, but then I thought twice about it… And as a result, here is my answer:
I never would become a Lebanese minister, let alone have anything to do with Lebanese politics.
Why? Simple. Because the first requirements to being elected are corruption and dishonesty.
