The often-overlooked Ministry for the Displaced could face the additional responsibility of taking on more Lebanese internal evacuees if the precarious security situation persists, according to it's recently appointed Minister Alice Shabtini, on whose shoulders the neglected portfolio, still mired with the missteps of its predecessors, now falls.Upon her appointment as one of the independent ministers in Prime Minister's Tammam Salam's Cabinet formed nearly three weeks ago, the media immediately took notice of Shabtini as the only female minister in the new government, which she said highlighting only served to reinforce gender stereotypes. An active magistrate for nearly 46 years, presiding over countless hearings has evidently rubbed off on Shabtini, whose words are measured at all times, as though she is prudently handing out a verdict.In terms of planning for the future of the ministry, Shabtini said she didn't have a clear-cut plan of her own yet, as the Cabinet, which is still at an impasse over its policy statement, faces an uncertain future.
