A Lebanese lawmaker said on Monday that Lebanon has two presidents. The second president refers to the leader of Hezbollah, who holds a lot of power.

Camille Melki with Heart For Lebanon says, “Now, this is a little bit of a stretch, but definitely I can understand why people would say that, especially since Hezbollah dictates a lot of what happens in Lebanon. It holds a lot of political and paramilitary military power.”

Hezbollah’s conflicting goals

Meanwhile, the leader of Hezbollah made a tv address accusing Saudi Arabia of terrorism. The Lebanese Prime Minister distanced his office from the remarks, not wanting to get involved in regional conflicts. Melki says, “We are almost a failed state, so they want to be careful how they make their statements. They don’t want to keep making more enemies.”
