Lebanon, elections, Hezbollah, parliament

The defeat by Hezbollah’s allies could transfer control of the Lebanese parliament to a Saudi supporter with leadership allegedly close to Israel, which could result in incomplete counting of votes in Sunday’s elections. Suggests.

Sunday’s election was the first election after a major 2019 demonstration of corruption and economic stagnation disrupted the government and Prime Minister Saad Hariri resigned.

The Lebanese Forces (LF), the far-right Christian party, descended as the votes were barely completed. From fascist Kataeb It is supported by Saudi Arabia and appears ready to expand its dominance over the Christian seats of the Lebanese parliament.
according to Associated PressAnother Christian party, the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM), led by President Michel Aoun, who formed an alliance with Shiite Hezbollah and Amal in the Alliance Block on March 8, is likely to lose LF seats. .. As a result, LF leader Samir Jaaja has already declared victory and has stated that he will form a new government without Hezbollah, Amal and FPM.

Lebanese will participate in polls when the country reaches “its lowest decline” in the economic crisis, Journo says.

Mohammad Rudd, who heads “Loyalty to Resistance Blocks”, the political arm of Hezbollah in Congress, could rage between 1975 and 1990, causing a “new civil war” that killed more than 120,000 people. Warned LF about taking action.

“If you don’t want to work with us in Congress, you’ll want to be isolated again, and you want to lead Lebanon into a dangerous time. That’s what Israelis and Americans want. .. According to the cradle..

“Be careful not to use it as a fuel that could ignite the civil war. We welcome you as a congressional opponent to our opponents who have declared that they have won without the evidence I say. We will not accept you as an Israeli shield, “he added.

According to the IDF, the F-15 fighter escorted a US B-1 bomber across the Israeli sky to the Gulf on October 30, 2021. -Sputnik International, 1920, 16.01.2222

Israel has reportedly created a “wish list” of weapons for the United States to engage in Iran and Hezbollah.
Lard’s comments are not just rhetoric: Israeli Channel 12 published an editorial Calling for Hezbollah to intervene in Lebanon’s elections earlier this year, [Hezbollah leader Hassan] Nasrara feels dangerous. It is his duty to find ways to delay elections, including the use of violence. “It doesn’t add sympathy to him, but let’s push him into that corner.”

The Taif Agreement, which ended the civil war, established a confession system in which parliamentary seats and the state’s central bureau were designated as specific religious communities (Christians, Sunnis, Shiites). The prime minister must always be a Sunni Muslim, the president must be a Christian, and the chairman of the parliament must be a Shiite Muslim.

Therefore, even if the LF secures a majority of the coalition, it is believed that the speakers must be Shiite and that all Shiite seats are occupied by Hezbollah and Amal. That’s why Geagea plans to expel Amal leader Nabih Berri as a speaker. This is the position since 1992 and may be nothing more than hostility.
