  • Description

    In the town of Ehden 40 miles north-east of Beirut, neighbours and Deputies have continued to celebrate the election of Suleiman Franjieh as Lebanon's new President.

    Since his surprise narrow win in a Chamber of Deputies election a week ago, the local streets have been festooned with decorations. A constant stream of wellwishers has called at Mr Franjieh,s Villa, and on Sunday, (23 August), his visitors included many Deputies and members of the clergy.

    The election of Mr Franjieh...who has been Economy Minister in the Lebanese Government....came as shock to the mainly Moslem Nahjist block, but was a source of extreme delight to Lebanon's christian Community. Since entering politics only ten years ago, Mr Franjieh has held several portfolios. He will be sworn-in as Lebanon's new President on 23rd September.
