Hezbollah needs representation in Parliament and Cabinet in order to defend the resistance, the group's leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said Monday night ahead of May's parliamentary elections.In 2008, Siniora's government confronted Hezbollah, shutting down the party's telecoms operations and moving to consolidate state control at Beirut's airport.As for the upcoming period ahead of parliamentary elections, Nasrallah vowed that Hezbollah would not be dragged into the verbal mudslinging or respond to provocative speeches after Prime Minister Saad Hariri said several times at rallies of supporters over the weekend that the upcoming elections were a battle with Nasrallah's party. Turning to Hezbollah's Baalbeck-Hermel stronghold, the Hezbollah secretary-general once again spoke of his willingness to personally visit "each village".
