Kataeb leader MP Sami Gemayel announced the party's "Pulse of Metn" list for Mount Lebanon's Metn district. The leader of the Lebanese Democratic Party will align with the Free Patriotic Movement, most notably Energy Minister Cesar Abi Khalil who is running for an MP seat in Aley, and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party in the Chouf-Aley electoral district.The outspoken former justice minister and ex-chief of the Internal Security Forces is looking to claim the mantle of opposition to Syria and Iran in Lebanon's parliamentary elections on May 6 .He is fielding candidates in three districts: complete lists in Akkar and Tripoli-Minyeh-Dinnieh and an incomplete list in Beirut II.Despite just 600 people attending the event, Rifi counted it a success.Rifi was surprised by the thousands who turned out to the rally near Bebnine, Akkar, Saturday.
