Hezbollah wins, surprise surprise!

June 6th, 2005 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Shia group Hezbollah have won all of South Lebanons
seats in the second stage of the countrys
parliamentary elections. They formed a joint list with
their former rivals Amal. The win was widely expected:
6 of the candidates won by default when all their
rivals pulled out. This is proving to be an even more
predictable election than when Lebanon was under
Syrian influence. Bashar Al Assad no longer owns
Lebanon: its now in Hariris wallet. Next week Walid
Jumblat will win the whole of the Chouf/Mount Lebanon
region despite a non challenge from former warlord
Michel Aoun.
