Contrary to a widely held view that the formation of state committees simply buries projects rather than pushes them forward, the Cabinet's decision Monday to set up a ministerial committee to explore a new electoral law, headed by Prime Minister Saad Hariri, is aimed at drafting a law by Thursday at the latest, ministerial sources said.Once the committee, which is slated to hold its first meeting under Hariri at the Grand Serail Tuesday, has drafted a new vote law, it will present it to the Cabinet to be examined and later approved by ministers, a ministerial source told The Daily Star.During the special Cabinet session chaired by President Michel Aoun at Baabda Palace devoted to devising a new electoral law Monday, ministers did not discuss any of the voting formulas that had been floated in the past few weeks.
