The Takeaway
The World
Final election results in Lebanon show that the March 14th coalition, a pro-Western alliance, has defeated Hezbollah and its allies in a tight race and will retain a majority in Parliament. For more we are joined by Haytham Nasr, a Lebanese-Christian with dual Lebanese-British nationality, who voted in his first election for the U.S.-backed March 14th coalition headed by Saad Hariri. Also joining the conversation is Amal Saad Ghorayed, an expert on Hezbollah and author of Hizbu'llah: Politics and Religion (Critical Studies on Islam Series), who can explain the impact of this setback on Hezbollah.
