Resistance Movement win landslide victory in Lebanon elections

TEHRAN, May 08 (MNA) – Preliminary results show Hezbollah, Amal and their political allies have won majority of the seats in Lebanon’s parliamentary elections.

The Secretary General of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah in a televised speech expressed his gratitude to Resistance Axis supporters yesterday afternoon, declaring the elections a national achievement.

The Hezbollah and Amal are reported to have won 29 seats in the Sunday’s vote, while 11 more seats are predicted to have won by other political parties aligned with the two.

The results from Sunday elections would enhance the Resistance Movement led by Hezbollah politically.

According to Reuters, the Saudi and Western-backed Prime Minister Saad Harriri would emerge as the Sunni Islamic leader with the biggest bloc in the 128-seat parliament, making him the frontrunner to form the next government even though he lost seats.

Lebanese Prime minister must be a Sunni according to country’s sectarian power-sharing system.
