Monday's parliamentary elections results produced unexpected dramatic success for the Lebanese Forces, which saw the Christian party almost double its number of MPs from eight to 14 .Riachi told The Daily Star that the LF will extend its hands to all parties in matters of national interest – even to the Amal Movement and Hezbollah, with whom they share many political differences.This victory placed the LF, which was marginalized under the winner-take-all system of the previous vote law, on a competing level with other major political parties such as the Free Patriotic Movement, the Amal Movement, Hezbollah and the Future Movement, who each grabbed a similar number of seats in Sunday's elections.Attributing the LF's success to the new proportional law, Jabbour said LF leader Samir Geagea's strategy to nominate only one or two candidates in each district was also a smart move.
