Champions of Democracy

While I was in Beirut a few days ago, I somehow missed this interesting and unusually good piece of news about the country. The Lebanese Interior Minister received an award from the International Foundation for Electoral Systems.  In this context, Former President Jimmy Carter said:

"I have supervised more than 83 elections in 83 countries worldwide but the best I have seen were in Lebanon [in 2009]."

I wonder what he thinks of the candidates, though.
