Jumblat Declares 'Full' Electoral Agreement with Hariri

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat has announced that a “full” electoral agreement has been reached between him and Prime Minister Saad Hariri, the leader of al-Mustaqbal Movement.

“The electoral agreement with Hariri will involve Chouf, West Bekaa and Beirut,” Jumblat told al-Joumhouria newspaper in remarks published Wednesday.

“Discussions are still ongoing with other political forces to complete the PSP's alliances” in the upcoming parliamentary elections, Jumblat added.

He noted that “negotiations are mainly taking place with the Lebanese Forces from the Christian side.”

Jumblat added that the PSP's “official and final alliances” may be declared “within two days.”

Jumblat had met Hariri on Monday at the Center House.
