PARLIAMENTARY DEMOCRATIC FRONT

the members of kamal jumblatt's parliamentary bloc in lebanon.

The Parliamentary Democratic Front was a powerful political group in the 1972 Lebanese election, although it did not have a clear political agenda beyond loyalty to the political leadership of Kamal Jumblatt. It included members from various sects but was predominantly Druze-oriented, given the Druze basis of Jumblatt's leadership.
