A major bill that sets to shakeup the county's media regulation with over 120 amendments was finalized by a parliamentary committee Tuesday, following five years of consultations. "Discussions have been ongoing for the last five years with recommendations from MPs," head of Parliament's Media and Telecommunications Committee MP Hasan Fadlallah told The Daily Star Tuesday evening. He added the proposal includes some 120 amendments to the existing regulation. Lebanon's media industry is currently covered by the 1962 Law of Publications and the 1994 Audiovisual Media Law, written well before the digital revolution.Fadlallah said that he hoped the proposal would be passed to the legislature soon.Fadlallah, a Hezbollah-affiliated MP, also praised last week's decision by Lebanese courts that ruled regional satellite operator Arabsat must resume broadcasting Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV station.
