As the formation of a new government inches closer, Minister of State for Combating Corruption, Nicolas Tueni, said he had done all he could to fight corruption with the meager resources provided.The Office of the Minister of State for Combating Corruption is not a ministry, even if it is sometimes referred to as one.Tueni was appointed to the government by President Michel Aoun, an acquaintance of Tueni's since the president returned to Lebanon from exile in 2005 .Tueni named five main pieces of legislation necessary to fight corruption, some of which he had worked on.According to Tueni, the outlying issues with the law would be resolved when the national commission is formed, because it could pursue the cases.Tueni said his office's most important achievement has been following up on public sector tenders, alongside the Tenders Department, and trying to increase competition, which lowers prices.Follow corruption and kill the corruption.
