Hezbollah leader urges rejection of pro-US candidates in Lebanon’s polls
Hezbollah has warned the Lebanese nation against voting for pro-US candidates in the forthcoming parliamentary elections, saying such legislators will simply hand over the country to Washington.

Speaking on the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Imam Mahdi religious school in Baalbeck, Sayyed Nasrallah called on people to act responsibly during this election and be careful not to vote based on party, family, or religious fanaticism.

He also called upon people from all walks of life to participate in the elections, which are scheduled to be held on May 6.

“Voters should consider national interests when picking candidates and voting for them. People should approach the upcoming legislative polls from the perspective of fulfilling responsibilities towards the country,” he said.

Nasrallah further noted, “Voters should not make their decisions on the basis of candidates’ family connections, religious or party affiliations.”

The Hezbollah chief went on to say that the movement’s legislators represented the entire Lebanese nation, and not simply their political bloc.

Nasrallah added that Lebanese voters should not cast their ballots in favor of those who would hand over the country to the US, compromise over oil reserves with the Israeli regime, conspire against Hezbollah or destroy the country’s economy.

The Hezbollah leader also warned against the plots being hatched by Washington in the Middle East, describing the recent tour of the region by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in line with attempts to carry out such schemes

He called upon supporters of the resistance to be aware that voting for the resistance helps in preserving the blood and achievements of the martyrs who fell on this path, specifically during this phase in which schemes against the resistance are escalating.

The Hezbollah secretary general asserted that “today in 2018 we must reap the harvest of what have begun in 1982, and the most important achievement until today is preserving and protecting the resistance.”
