Sawt Beirut International’s News Bulletin – March 3rd, 2022

Hezbollah revealed its parliamentary candidates yesterday, the Amal organization is ready to release its candidates, and the Free Patriotic Movement has scheduled March 14th as the date for revealing its candidates. Thus, the news appears to be routine and unremarkable.

However, it is not the case in depth. Hezbollah did not reveal the names of its candidates until it had gathered allies, imprisoned them, and enlisted them in a single trench in preparation for the elections. As a result, the long-standing historical disagreements between the Amal Movement and the Free Patriotic Movement have been bridged, with ramifications for the future elections.

What is mentioned about the movement also applies to all the forces and groups that fall under the party’s wing. As a result, the party is gearing up for a massive struggle in order to achieve its stated goal: retaining the legislative majority in parliament.

What, on the other hand, do the authorities that declare themselves sovereign? So yet, nothing has been said. Some forces and parties, such as troops and battalions, do announce their candidates, but there does not appear to be collaboration, communication, or alliance between these forces in order for them to collaborate to reach Nejmeh Square, or to create a coherent front after reaching the parliamentary symposia.

The Sunni arena, on the other hand, is still in the works. A conclusion of negotiations and interactions to establish the criteria for the following step.

To summarize, Lebanon is at a crossroads, confronted with critical difficulties, but its sovereign authorities continue to confront them in primitive ways. Is this how you deal with Iran’s armed forces in Lebanon? Gets this how the country’s Iranian guardianship is removed?
