Hezbollah Deputy Secretary-General Cast His Vote in Beirut’s Second District

Hezbollah Deputy Secretary-General of Hezbollah Sheikh Naim Qasem cast his vote in Lebanese 2022 parliamentary elections in Bachoura, Beirut’s second district.

In a statement to reporters after casting his vote, Qasem said, “The battle is a battle of political choices. After the elections, no one has the right to say that Parliament does not have representation.”

“We accept the results, no matter what and we welcome everyone because we are facing a stage that needs a renaissance and work.”

The Deputy Secretary-General noted that the electoral process is going smoothly, adding “people will express their demands and we will accept what the people want in the new parliament”.

The voting turnout in Beirut’s second district reached 18.5% as of 01:30 p.m., according to Hezbollah’s electoral machine.

Earlier the day, Head of Hezbollah’s Executive Council Sayed Hashim Safi Al Din cast his vote in the Lebanese parliamentary elections in Deir Qanoun En Nahr, Southern Lebanon.

In a press statement after casting his vote, Safi Al Din said “the time for speaking is over and the time has come to vote”, calling on citizens to cast their votes and elect the honest to protect and build their country.

Voters began casting their ballots in a general election since the morning, for the first time since the October protests of 2019.

103 lists are competing in 15 electoral districts with about 4 million Lebanese voters.

For the first time in thirty years, parliamentary election is taking place with the boycott of the Future Movement and its leader Saad Hariri after Saudi pressures which pushed the latter to suspend politics action and call for boycotting the electoral process.

The election is taking place amid clear division between two political projects. The first is the national project represented by Hezbollah and its allies which seeks to establish a strong and just state. On the Other hand there is a group hostile to the resistance and its weapons, supported by the United States and the Gulf. This group seeks, through its media network, to hold the resistance responsible for the economic crisis, corruption, Beirut Port explosion and the Lebanese pound devaluation.
