Lebanon PM Hariri says party loses third of seats

Beirut (AFP) – Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri announced Monday that his Sunni-dominated political movement had lost a third of its seats in parliament following the country’s first general election in nine years.

Hariri said the results, which have not yet been officially announced, credit his Future Movement with 21 of parliament’s 128 seats, a drop from the 33 it controlled in the outgoing legislature.
