A candidate for a Shiite seat in southern Lebanon's Bint Jbeil is aiming to offset what he sees as "unjust" dominance by the Amal Movement and Hezbollah in the upcoming parliamentary elections.Other members of the new list include public health specialist Rima Hmeid for another of the three Shiite seats in Bint Jbeil, engineer Jamil Blout for a Shiite seat in Nabatieh, engineer Fadi Abu Jamra for the Orthodox seat in Marjayoun and lawyer Akram Qais for the Druze seat in Hasbaya.For residents of Noureddine's district in southern Lebanon, the previous electoral law meant Amal and Hezbollah could dominate general elections, allowing them to reign there virtually unchallenged.
