La elección podría entregar el poder a Irán

By Phil Bainbridge

May 10, 2022 - Se realizan elecciones parlamentarias con trasfondo de estancamiento político y crisis económica, con incapacidad de proporcionar servicios básicos, la caída en picada del valor de la libra libanesa y votantes suníes descontentos.

High abstentions among Sunnis, together with the withdrawal from the election of former Prime Minister Saad Hariri and his Future Movement, could be enough to hand power to the Iran-backed Hezbollah.

Within the framework of Lebanon’s denominationally accounted parliament, Hezbollah and their allies - who won 71 of the 128 seats in the last election - could control a two-thirds majority of 86 seats, enough to bypass any blocking veto.
