Crowds Flock to Baabda Palace to Congratulate Aoun on His Election as President
November 6, 2016
Thousands of supporters flocked to the Baabda Palace from various areas around Lebanon in the wee hours of Sunday morning to congratulate General Michel Aoun on his election as President.
A large ‘People’s Palace’ banner was erected in the yard of the palace which started to welcome people of all ages since early morning hours.
The President is expected to address the crowds at 11:00 a.m.
Crowds were carrying banners supporting Aoun and his allies, but security forces were confiscating any partisan flags, under orders from Aoun that people could only hold the national Lebanese flag.
The Free Patriotic Movement had called on its supporters to take part in the rallies en masse.
