This is definitely a step in the right direction.
Sayegh bans smoking at Social Affairs Ministry.
I'm all for the right of smokers to light up, I was an avid smoker myself. Although I stopped months ago, I still from time to time light up.
However, I believe that the cigarette does not belong in, at the very least, government places if not all public places.
Kudos for the minister in charge. Bravo.
