Rahme bemoaned the bureaucracy of the public sector.Most parties agreed, however, that the public sector requires the help of the private sector to address Lebanon's structural deficiencies.It found that 92 percent of Lebanese think that Lebanon is heading in the wrong direction and 96 percent consider the economic situation the most important topic. Ninety-five percent said that politicians were not talking about the economy enough.
