Two days after election day, Lebanon’s Minister of Interior and Municipalities, Bassam Mawlawi, revealed the winners of the seats in the unicameral legislature that will assume the mandate for the period 2022-2026.

Researcher in Middle East regional issues and European studies Hosam Matar expressed on Twitter that the new governmental structure poses a challenge, following the rise of candidates coming from the 2019 protests.

Matar stated that reaching compromises and consensus will represent a difficult task for any hybrid parliament and foresaw sharp divisions that may disrupt its productivity.

Local media analyses reflected the dominance of Hizbulah (Party of God) and Amal among the Shiite movement, as well as the advance of the Lebanese Forces, the Free Patriotic Current and the cohesion of the Progressive Socialist Party by the Christian bloc.

In the midst of its worst economic crisis, the holding of the polls proved a positive aspect for the nation according to regional insiders, although the 41% turnout fell eight points short of voters in 2018.
