Since the current parliament was elected in June 2009, the lawmakers have met 21 times to pass 169 laws, mostly related to raise government and civil servants’ salaries, receive foreign aid and amend election law that will enable their re-election. In 2013, Lebanon’s lawmakers only met twice to pass two laws, one of which was to extended their mandate for 18 months. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla, File)
