Orange Room Supporter
LCP has strong presence in the areas adjunct to Nabatieyh especially in the age group between 45-55. They normally voted Amal.Th lcp despite all still present in the south.. from the assassination,to the political persecutions, to the sermons by some sheikhs in nabatieh and sour shouting ( like dogs ) that no communist should remain in the south , to the collapse of the whole socialist block which was the main supporter of lcp and its milithia , to the lack of all kind of materia resources ..despite all that LCP can still gather a list and present itself against the duo..that in itself a victory..the blood of the communist martyrs in the south didnt go in vain..and the ideas of hussein mroue and mahdi amel still living and illuminating the minds of many ..thats enough make us communist be proud.
Now that we may see that the lists with possibilities are these lists that offer alternatives to Amal's corruption. So, defects would choose between the Ossairan list with Tayar and certainly Hezbollah, or the Communist list with Hanna Ghrayeb and Hezbollah's. This is taking that HA list will be the winner, but who is the Shi'a player that would take seats from Amal would be decided by the مرشح تفضيلي vote. This is if I am understanding the new electoral law correctly. I guess the decision of the small da'era on the مرشح تفضيلي may exclude candidates from a list even if the list is a winner.
We will see if communism really matters soon enough.
