Yesterday (Tuesday), Nabih Berri was elected as the speaker of the Lebanese parliament for the seventh time with 65 votes out of a total of 128 votes, and Elias Bouasab was elected as his deputy (both allies of Hezbollah).
The Zionist regime's media reacted to this issue by announcing that "the opposition of Hezbollah and Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah suffered their first defeat after the election."
These media outlets added:
The "United Hezbollah Camp" was an achievement in the Lebanese parliament. With the election of Barry and Elias Bousab, Hezbollah allies, as his deputy, the "Hezbollah opposition camp" is less cohesive today.
The Zionist website "Roternet" also wrote:
Despite the fact that Hezbollah lost some of its power in the recent elections, today it can breathe a sigh of relief. Barry became the speaker of the Lebanese parliament for the seventh time, and his Christian deputy, Elias Bouass, is an ally of Hezbollah.
The Israel Hume newspaper also wrote:
Nabih Berri was elected speaker by more than half of the members of parliament. This is the seventh presidency of the 84-year-old Nabih Berri in the Lebanese parliament. He was first elected speaker of parliament in 1992 and has maintained an alliance with Hezbollah since the Lebanese civil war.
The newspaper continued:
By choosing Barry, the first test of Hezbollah's enemies ended in "disgraceful defeat." The Lebanese forces are the real losers, which, despite being able to strengthen its presence among the Christian tribe, failed to choose another candidate to replace Nabih Berri.
Israel Hume added:
It seems that with the re-election of Bari, the Hezbollah camp will try to form a limited coalition.
