On June 12 another stage of Parliamentary elections took place in
Lebanon. The elections were held in the most important regions of
Highland Lebanon and Bekaa Valley. The Beirut-based Zartonk daily
informed that this time more Armenians were elected to the Parliament
of Lebanon. These two deputies are Hakob Bagratouni, member of ARF
Dashnaktsiutiun, and non-party George Kasarj. Hakob Bagratouni has
been the head of the Sofia Hakobian National College. He also occupied
various positions in the party. The second candidate George Kasarj
though non-party man, has been cooperating with ARF Dashnaktsiutiun
very frequently.

Thus, there are six representatives of the Lebanese Armenians elected
to the Parliament of the country. The newly elected deputies are Hakob
Gasarchian, Yeghik Geregian, Jean Oghasapian, Serge Tursargisian,
Hakob Bagratouni and George Kasarj.
