Lebanon's Parliament is back in full swing, but something is very different.There are 64 brand-new MPs – half the legislature. Another 15 are former MPs, returning after a hiatus of nine years or more.One of the fresh faces is Zgharta MP Tony Frangieh. Not only is he new to Parliament, he's its second-youngest member. Jisr's party is returning to Parliament in much-reduced numbers.Not only did Future lose the deputy speaker's position and one of the commissioner's spots, it fell from 57 committee assignments to 36 .By numbers, Jisr's Beiruti colleague Rola Tabsh Jaroudi could already be considered the hardest-working MP – despite being a freshman legislator. She sits on four committees, more than any of her peers.
