Taimur Jumblat: Walid Jumblat's Will Shall Not be Defeated


Taimur Jumblat, the son and heir apparent of Druze leader MP Walid Jumblat, announced Friday that the Chouf-Aley 'Reconciliation List' will work on “building the state of law and institutions.”

“We stand before the teacher Kamal Jumblat who founded our path and we salute all the martyrs who offered their blood to protect this path,” Jumblat said at an electoral rally in Baakline on the eve of the electoral silence period.

He vowed that the Reconciliation List, a coalition led by the Progressive Socialist Party and the Lebanese Forces, will “continue the journey and seek to make Mount Lebanon and the country stronger.”

And urging a heavy turnout in the May 6 elections, the young candidate stressed that “Kamal Jumblat's strength and Walid Jumblat's will cannot be defeated.”

So does he have a plan yet for his son? Surely this family for good or bad has had the longest ruling of any in Lebanon. I am sure the Jumblatts go back at least a couple of centuries of rule?.

So, he is better than any other Druze simply because he is a spoiled privileged son of a warlord?

There is nothing "progressive" nor "socialist" about your party. You're just another religious based party just all the others.

Exactly Rabiosa its another purely confessional party but then again what party is not? Lebanon needs two parties at best and both need to be non confessional. Currently we have well over ten party's and all without doubt are confessional.
