"Gibran Basil," the leader of Lebanon's Al-Tiar Al-Watani Al-Hur party, which is close to Hezbollah, said in a press conference last night after the end of the voting period:
The money spent on the elections comes from a well-known regional source, which indicates that the [Lebanese internal] struggle is at this level.
According to Al-Mayadin, Basil said in his remarks that the Lebanese elections were not a normal struggle and competition, adding:
Al-Tiar al-Watani is no longer fighting the Lebanese forces, Al-Ashtraki, Al-Kataeb, Amal and others, as of today, but a battle that began at least on October 17, 2019 with the United States, Israel and their allies.
Referring to the remarks of former US Deputy Secretary of State for Near East Affairs David Shanker, he said:
David Shanker admitted that he handled the process of confronting me well and also admitted that the project that targeted us had failed.
Former US Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs David Shanker makes serious remarks about US President Donald Trump's role in hastening Lebanon's financial collapse and abusing the October 17, 2019 protest movement to It has distorted the image of Hezbollah and weakened it and its allies, including Al-Tayyar al-Watani.
Regarding the election process, Basil stressed that the money spent on the elections has a well-known regional source, which indicates that the battle is at this level:
The Lebanese Forces Party (Lebanese Forces, led by Samir Geagea) is the first party to buy consciences and votes in Lebanon. He continued: "This election involves cheating the will of the people by spending money, and we are silent on this issue in order to move towards a solution and work."
