The MEL does not 'apply' anything. What applies is that you go back to the gate, open the doors, enter the defect in the tech log, call an engineer, wait an hour for the engineer to arrive, and THEN, if the fault cannot be cleared in a reasonable time frame, possibly apply the MEL in order to dispatch.
Maybe where you are, WE are on the headset for departure at our airline!
