Victorious anti-Syrians lead new era for Lebanon
Monday, 20 June, 2005 @ 7:19 PM

Beirut, Lebanon - The anti- Syrian Opposition dealt a commanding blow to Michel Aoun's return to the Lebanon political scene. In a clean sweep of the 28 contested seats for North Lebanon, the Opposition amassed over 56% of the total seats in the election ...

in what is being hailed a landslide victory.

The official results have yet to be announced, and are expected at a press conference held by Interior Minister Hassan Sabaa at 8pm Beirut Time on Monday, June 20.

Approximately 63 candidates competed on Sunday for the 28 seats contested, in the final round of the four week long election.

"The almost final results show that the people has had its say. (The people) said that it wants change and that's what we call for," Hariri said on Monday.

The strong alliance between Hariri's Tayyar Al Mustaqbal, Jumblatt's Progessive Socialist Party, Samir Geagea's Lebanese Forces and Qornet Shahwan is expected to align with Amal and Hizbullah for an overwhelming majority of 97 votes in the new parliament. Such an alliance would yield over 75% of the votes in parliament, well over the two-thirds majority needed for electing changes
