President Macron awards MP Ezzedine the legion of honor


MP Inaya Ezzedine received the Legion of Honor, the Knight degree, from French President Emmanuel Macron in recognition of her efforts during her career in the service of the public, according to a statement issued by her office on October 4. The statement said that before leaving Lebanon, the French Ambassador to Beirut, Bruno Foucher, handed Ezzedine a letter stating that Macron issued a decree on September 23 granting her the highest French order of merit in her capacity as a physician, a former minister of state for administrative development and as the head of the Woman and Child Parliamentary Committee. The award, the letter said, was in appreciation of Ezzedine’s continuous struggle for women’s political rights in Lebanon, particularly her constant demands to empower women and allow them to confer citizenship to their children. Ezzedine, through her remarkable career, is a model for young Lebanese women, the letter maintained. In return, Ezzedine thanked Macron, stressing that the award constituted an incentive to continue her efforts to achieve social justice and sustainable development in the country.
