it is the other way around. the higher the hassel the more difficult it will be for the watani candidates to make it all over Lebanon. the higher participation will converge on the bigger parties, and is in their own interest. therefore the parties, Christian parties in particular, are working on increasing the participation as much as they can specifically to raise the hassel.Depends how high the hassel ends up, remember michelle tueni&co will definitely not reach it, so if the hassel drops to 5.5k and watsni overperforms, maybe.
But i highly doubt it
