10:23 am
politics in lebanon has been about dividing the shares, and compromising between the different parties in order for each one of them to have its own shared after certain bargaining, this is not a democratic process. there when is a 1st and post civil war politics, which has been dominated by mainly sectarian leaders, many of them, former militia leaders, but so far what they have in common is their opposition to the system. they know they'll need to speak in one voice forming the blog at this point for a form is, is very essential for us to be able to confront the current establishment parties. we know that they are very powerful. we know how much they have level intervals. those parties also have supporters who have shown willingness to use violence, even destroying opposition. symbols such as setting fire to the iron fist in the epicenter of the protest movement that came to represent the peoples resistance and
10:24 am
determination gone or are the crowds. their voices are now inside parliament, but the traditional party still retained the majority of seats. they are the dominant force. it's still a resilient regime, and opponents remain fragmented. to be genuinely kingmaker, they will have to form a united, coherent to block. they will have to form alliances with other groups as they might not have the influence that they sink as they will have a they will certainly offer a dissenting opinions. they will raise their voices. they will criticize certain policies, but when it comes to passing new legislation, they will face a stumbling block. ah, no doubt, there is a new beginning, but not all is well in lebanon. were political dynamics after the election may not be much different than before. santa who there else is eda, beirut,
