I would like to use the phrase "in the light of the current events" in the following context:
This initiative of the government is clear in the light of the current events.
I mean, the initiation of specific bills makes sense against a background of the current political events in the country.
I have doubts about a choice of a correct phrase here. What would you suggest for this context?
1) in the light of the current events 2) against a background of current events 3) another phrase that is perfectly suitable for this context.
