Speaker Nabih Berri announced in a press conference on Monday the names of the AMAL Movement candidates that will be running in the parliamentary elections, urging commitment to forthcoming electoral lists that will be gathering AMAL, Hizbullah and other allies.

Berri said the AMAL Movement's program is based on commitment to the Constitution and the Taef Agreement. “Committing to the Constitution and the National Pact is our foremost choice,” he stressed.

He pointed out that “he will keep up efforts to eliminate political sectarianism in Lebanon and to adhere to the trilogy formula of Army, People and the Resistance.”

Referring to Israel's threats against Lebanon's oil and land rights, he called for completing the “demarcation of the maritime Blue Line and to protect Lebanon's offshore excavation rights. Israel is our enemy, not Iran,” he said.

Berri said they will work on improving the representation of women in the parliament.

Berry is the head of a militia, a thuggish one unlike the Kurds for instance. There should be a bounty on his head and he should be taken down ASAP.

Wallah F.O.S.C.T.A. Rumors has it he died a hero in Syria. I believe however that he scammed his bosses into giving his ninja wife $ 30 000 for his martyrdom. We know for a fact that he’s a coward, he never agreed to stating his name openly here when he was threatening the Naharnet staff as well as the readership. So my guess is that the keyboard warrior is hiding in some basement.

Same old crooks on that list. Btw, its hilarious when Berri talks about working against sectarianism at the same time he pledges allegiance to the trilogy formula of "Army, People and the Resistance". We all know that it really means the Army, the shiah people (that is unfree to express their opinion) and the shiah militia. And I am being generous with the latter now, calling it a militia and not a terror group.

Why is Berri, a Shia, urging support for the National Pact (enshrined in the Constitution in the Article 24 reservation of half of Parliament to Christians)? And again the big question: why isn't Hezbullah putting the Shia majority (per Noam Chomsky) out in the streets for Constitutional Reform? And what do Hariri's Sunnis say about the sacred National Pact?

I’m voting for a new party. Definitely not Mustaqbal.
