Deputy Parliament Speaker Elie Ferzli Wednesday said elected officials have the "right" to lie to Lebanese citizens about their voting record in Parliament, in comments made during a short interview with The Daily Star.Ferzli was then asked if this meant MPs had the right to lie to citizens.Ferzli then said that he supported the idea of all votes being accessible to the public via an online platform, comparable to the U.K. Parliament's database where the public can browse the voting history of any MP.Ferzli went on to say Parliament had the full right to continue its legislative work with the presence of a caretaker government, pointing to the division of powers between the legislative and executive branches.
