It is more than fair to say that FPM is left alone and being fought by all major parties to minimize FPM size in order to slow down President Aoun.
Needed FM in Akkar and Bekaa.... most of the seats were given to LF... which is ok as FM and LF were allies for a long time, plus that LF have some Christian representation overall.
What was a true backstab came from none but HA. Hidding behind Berri, HA made sure that FPM doesn't get any seat in HA strongholds; Marje3youn, Baalbak, West Bekaa; HA went to take FPM Jezzine mps.
If I was Bassil, I would've withdrawal from Baabda and Beirut 2 stupid same list.
Last thing, what HA did to FPM will not go unoticed for FPM base. The trust is broken and if HA wants a weak President and FPM, tekram 3youno... this election is passed FPM base, but in the next election, if HA doesn't correct the mistakes against President Aoun and FPM for the same Berri bla bla bla; Chritians will have enough, and shouldn't be surprised if LF walks in with 20 or 30 mps in 4 years.
