B for Bacchus Online May 2022 A DM from my friend, Zeina, on the night I left Beirut. It says, "don't take too long." OVER A DOZEN SEATS! For those who don't follow Lebanese politics, our parliamentary elections were this weekend. The results are finally in and, although the majority still went to traditional parties, we got new names in there. Many of those names are people who've been working for the country for years now and this is a culmination of tiles placed one by one since the garbage crisis of 2015 - even before that too. There were some candidates who I thought were a no-brainer but they didn't make it through this time. I know there are many things to be upset about when it comes to this process and there were concessions and alliances made that I don't agree with. I understand the frustration of going from revolution to having to negotiate with aged scum but I'm choosing to see this small victory as another crack in their armor.
