AMAL, Hizbullah to Run in 'Unified Electoral Lists'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

AMAL Movement and Hizbullah officials in Mount Lebanon and the North held a meeting Thursday and announced they will run in unified lists in the upcoming parliamentary elections, as they strongly denounced the foreign minister's remarks about AMAL chief Speaker Nabih Berri.

The interlocutors, who met at AMAL's headquarters, first “strongly rejected” remarks made by Free Patriotic Movement chief Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil about Berri.

Bassil had called Berri a “thug” during a closed meeting in Batroun.

They also hailed the Speaker, saying he showed a “comprehensive and national role,” as a sort of “safety valve that enabled Lebanon and the Lebanese to overcome many obstacles and threats.”

AMAL and Hizbullah praised the positions of political forces, social, cultural and civil society officials for rejecting Bassil's “rhetoric."

They stressed keenness on “national unity,” highlighting the need to stop “sectarian instincts” from affecting the country's political and national entitlements.

They also emphasized that Lebanon will stage timely polls and that they will wage the elections in unified lists.

Politics in Lebanon for 10,500km2 they will align themselves with the devil himself if it meant they gain an inch.

It is amusing how you speak of yourselves.

You supported all those Salafi ISIS/Nusra groups in Syria, just because you hated Assad.

You allied with the devil da3ish Nusra against Hezbollah and Syria Assad.

Thanks Mystic but I would like to see both Kizballah and Da3ish removed from the area. We all know the war in Syria is between Iran and the GCC and personally I beleive you and KSA should take your war to the gulf and not use Lebanon. Lebanon is for the Lebanese and not Iran or KSA or religious nuts.
