This is not how Hezbollah should be faced!

All eyes are on Super Tuesday. What will happen in the House of Representatives after two days? Will Nabih Berri succeed in the first and second rounds and obtain an absolute majority? Or will he have to wait for the third round to be satisfied with the relative majority? Then who will be the Vice-President of the 2022 Council: Elias Bou Saab, Sajia Attia, or one of the civil society representatives? So far, there is no answer to these questions. The fog, despite all that is said and rumored, is the master of the situation. The main reason for the ambiguity is that no one knows the true position of the Free Patriotic Movement. If the current decides to proceed with the election of Berri, this means that the latter will obtain an absolute majority, and therefore Berri will exchange the positivity of the movement with a similar positivity so that he and his deputies are elected, and of course the representatives of Hezbollah Elias Bou Saab, which makes him arbiter as vice president. So the game is interconnected with each other, and the picture may not become clear before the first and second rounds of voting in order to know the position of the free current, and then Berri builds on the situation as required. So, nothing has changed in the new council. The games are the same, and the quotas and deals have not changed at the pillars of the authority and the system. On the other hand, the sovereign and change forces are scattered, although they are the majority, and they do not have a clear road map to confront council developments. How long will the dispersal continue? Is it possible with a scattered front that is not compacted to confront an iron organization such as Hezbollah??
