Hizbullah on Monday expressed hope that the newly elected French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, will bring a "more balanced" approach to Lebanon's political crisis, while the governing coalition wished for continued support from Paris. The outgoing French president, Jacques Chirac, has staunchly supported the Lebanese government against Syria and its local allies in the Lebanese opposition, including Hizbullah, drawing their criticism. Counting on a Sarkozy administration to change course in Lebanon, Hizbullah welcomed the election results and urged the new leader to make policy decisions that "are more appropriate with French national interests, and consequently less biased toward one party against the other."
