Despite the massive protests that took place during the Lebanese Revolution and the desire and efforts of the civil society to bring a major change to the political scene, most of the ruling political parties made it again to the parliament in these elections, with yet some differences that could be impactful.
For instance, Hezbollah and its allies no longer have the parliamentary majority. The Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SNNP) couldn’t secure a single seat. The Future Movement (FM) was absent from the race, abiding by Saad Hariri’s call to boycott. Instead, former FM members did run, securing 6 seats.
