After weeks of heated talks, the Lebanese parliament finally passed the $1.2B electricity bill yesterday during a legislative session following the consensus reached between rival politicians over the draft law a day earlier. 


This decision comes as a victory for the Lebanese people first and foremost, as they have been deprived of their most basic needs for years. Other issues related to minimum wages, water shortage, and increasing cost of living, are yet to be tackled properly and remain a burden on Lebanese citizens.


Rival political parties rushed to claim victory after the electricity bill was issued, with Aoun praising the energy minister and his team, and Sanioura giving March 14 a share of this achivement. Nevertheless, both agreed that this is a victory for the Lebanese.
