The discussion began with two questions the first was "Who you want to see as Lebanon's next president?" and followed by another question, 'why do you think they would be suited for the role?', which requires people to support their answer with strong evidence to show that their possible candidate is the best to become the next Lebanese president.

Despite that the question was shared in a serious way, most of people's answers were accompanied with sense of humor; some of the suggested possible candidates for the upcoming Lebanese elections were shared with the aim to make fun of the question.
