Both Hizbullah and the Amal movement took part in the elections of the second phase, in a joint list in south Lebanon that guaranteed an evident winning at the Shiite center. This is, however, will be after the first phase of the elections last Sunday which resulted in the winning of the list of Saad Eddine al-Harirti in all its 19 seats.
