Shi’ite politician Nabih Berri won at least half the votes in Lebanon’s parliament on Wednesday، securing his re-election as speaker for the sixth time since 1992، Reuters reported.

The lawmakers took office after a parliamentary vote on May 6، the country’s first since 2009.

Berri، 80، heads the Amal Movement and has been a close ally of the heavily armed Shi’ite Hezbollah since the end of the 1975-90 civil war.
