As Lebanon's political parties prepare the ground for the parliamentary elections, the Lebanese Forces and the Kataeb Party got their electoral machinery into gear over the weekend. In separate events Saturday and Sunday, both the LF and Kataeb urged the Lebanese people to use their vote as a call for change. LF leader Samir Geagea told the attendees at the party's headquarters in the Kesrouan town of Maarab that elections should mark a "revolution" in Lebanese politics. Kataeb head MP Sami Gemayel, in a high-octane rally at Forum De Beyrouth, urged those planning not to vote to reconsider.Hundreds of Kataeb supporters gathered at the forum to see the party launched its electoral program under the slogan "Pulse of Change".Gemayel described what he said was Kataeb's "transformation" after its resignation from the government of Tammam Salam in 2016, to become a true "opposition party".
