Time Repeats Itself in 56 Years: Zein Elder Speaker, Tueni Youngest MP
Beirut, 21 Jun 09, 07:55
The 2009 parliament is repeating history. Following the 1953 legislative elections the eldest Member of Parliament at the time was Yussef el-Zein who headed the opening parliament session for electing the parliament speaker.
The youngest elected Member of Parliament in that year was Ghassan Tueni.
56 years later elected MP Abdel Latif el-Zein (79 years) is parliament's eldest member who is scheduled to play the same role his father Youssef did in 1953.
In an additional coincidence elected Beirut 1 MP Nayla Tueni is now one of parliament's youngest members as her grandfather Ghassan was in 1953.
Hence, history repeats itself 56 years later.
