November 17th has not only marked the one-month anniversary of the Lebanese revolution, but also a great achievement with an independent candidate winning by electoral votes the position of Head of Beirut Bar Association.
Khalaf was quick to deny these rumors, explaining in a call to Al-Jadeed TV that he did not call Berri to “thank him” for his win as it was said, but the latter was the one who called Khalaf to congratulate him for the win, as a lawyer and part of the Bar Association.
Upon his victory, Khalaf sent out another message proclaiming his win and greeting “all Democracy lovers that the Bar Association is so full of. We hope that this festival today is one of many to be extended across the nation.”
Khalaf added, “The Bar Association was and will always be the impregnable fortress of freedom and people’s rights and it will always stay the primary stones needed to build a just state that we all are in need of.”
With the victory of Khalaf, the Lebanese Revolution scores another win. The politicians and their parties failed this time to achieve what they have always done to control the key institutions of the country.
And the nation is celebrating today everywhere, at least the majority seeking a better Lebanon.
