But first, let me take a selfie: Lebanese lawmaker snap one

This picture circulated on social media shows from left, MP Ali Bazzi, MP Hasan Fadlallah and Minister Ghazi Zeaiter as they take a selfie

BEIRUT: Despite the presidential stalemate, the failure of Parliament to convene and the fate of the Cabinet hanging in the balance, Lebanese politicians still make time to stay on top of trends.

A selfie of three Lebanese lawmakers went viral on social media Friday and included MP Ali Bazzi and Transport Minister Ghazi Zeaiter from Speaker Nabih Berri’s bloc and Hezbollah MP Hasan Fadlallah.

The picture, posted on several local media outlets, shows Bazzi, taking the selfie, sitting in the passenger seat with Zeaiter driving, without a seatbelt, and Fadlallah peaking out from the backseat.

The lawmakers might have also been inspired by the Lebanese version of the popular song "Let me take a #selfie," which has dominated Lebanese airwaves since its release earlier this year.
