The first eight groups controlling 72 seats in the parliament are the Cedar Revolution" people whom the US is backing. Siniora is the PM as representing that group. It is a mixture of Christians, Druze and Sunni Muslims.
The next six are "the opposition." The Shia are united here behind Hizbullah and Amal, but the Maronite Christian party of Michel Aoun is also present as are a couple of other mainly Christian groups and the "crazies" of the SSNP.
The "opposition’s" position is that the political system is rigged to prevent proportional representation of the Shia.
