Khalaf’s win is being celebrated as the first electoral victory for the revolution and it righteously is so. Khalaf, an independent candidate running against politically-backed candidates, got the highest number of votes and is officially the new head of the Beirut Bar Association.
Khalaf got the highest number of votes in the first round, which took the other politically-backed candidates by surprise. They decided all to team up against him in the second round but it backfired and he still emerged on top!
This is a major victory for the revolution and more importantly for the people and for justice.
