Bushra Khalil Withdraws from Tyre by-Elections

W460

A candidate running in the Tyre parliamentary by-election race withdrew leaving only Hizbullah’s candidate, Hassan Ezzeddine, running for the district’s vacant seat.

Bushra al-Khalil, a lawyer, said her withdrawal came at the request of Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

She announced her decision to reporters after meeting Hizbullah’s deputy chief Sheikh Naim Qassem on Friday.

“He informed me of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s wish to withdraw. I can’t turn down Sayyed Hassan,” she said.

Khalil and Ezzedine are the only candidates running for Tyre’s parliament seat, left vacant after the resignation of MP Nawwaf Mousawi.

Khalil is best known as one of the legal defenders of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein.

“He informed me of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s wish to withdraw. I can’t turn down Sayyed Hassan,” she said.

What a loss! She was going to change the world and take shia women to new heights.

What is disgrace and a slap on open free competitive democratic vote. She would've been been my representative, but alas every bows to the Hizbos.

Is it any wonder all candidates somehow voluntarily withdrew with the exception of Hizbos candidate? Hmmm... yeah democracy by the sword.

The problem is most of the shiite opposition are not even united to break the duopoly of Hizbos and Amal.
