Universal Children’s Day, Parliament took on a youthful face Sunday, the chamber hosting students on the occasion of Children’s Day.

Both Parliament Speaker Nabih and Prime Minister Najib Mikati took part in the special session, which was packed with students from across the country.

The students, all dressed in white, got a chance to experience the workings of the national assembly and took turns at posing questions on a number of subjects, including Internet safety, health care, electricity and Palestinian rights.

Berri, who opened and moderated the session, brought up the subjects of the crimes committed by Israel, the elections process, as well the aspirations of the people, in particular the youth and improving communication between them and Parliament through local and international civil society groups.

In his address on the occasion, Mikati said ever since he was young he had dreamed of taking part in Parliament and said that freedom was not absolute but was based on certain principles.
