TEHRAN, May 08 (Press Shia Agency) – A top adviser to Iran’s Leader hailed Hezbollah’s landslide victory in Sunday’s elections in Lebanon, saying the landslide victory will pay an important role in the future of the region.
“This great victory was a complementary to other victories of Lebanese nation against Israel,” Ali Akbar Velayati said on Tuesday.
Velayati added that the victory was also a victory for both the executive and legislative branches of the Lebanese government as both president and the prime minister are elected by the parliament.
He praised the Secretary General of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah’s role in the great victory, saying that despite Saudis and Zionists’ enormous efforts to derail the elections, Nasrallah led the people to the victory.
The top adviser to Iranian Leader went on to add that Israel and Saudi Arabia found out that the huge amount of money they spent on the elections proved to be futile.
Velayati underlined that Hezbollah’s victory will strengthen the Resistance Movement against Israel in the region and Syria.
He touched upon the next week’s election in Iraq, saying that the Resistance Front will once again show its power to its enemies following the victories in the two elections.
At the end, he expressed hope that the Resistance Front will reach final victory in Syria in the near future.
Preliminary results of Sunday’s parliamentary elections in Lebanon show that Hezbollah, Amal and their allies have won majority of votes.
