Lebanon's New Majority Cans President
It didn’t take long for the new majority to get to work in Lebanon. In fact, they have yet to sit in on their first Parliamentary session. This Thursday they called for President Emile Lahoud to resign, accusing him of covering up for a series of political assassinations targeting anti-Syrian figures. This is the first legislature not controlled by Damascus since the end of a Civil War from 1975-1990. The actual first session of Parliament is not scheduled until this coming Tuesday.
