Abstract: The Lebanese popular uprising against political authorities has posed a fundamental challenge to Hezbollah, given the entrenchment of its party and allies in parliament and governance after their victory in 2018. Therefore, Hezbollah perceived the uprising as an attempt to seize a long-awaited victory since the Syrian regime’s withdrawal from Lebanon in 2005, which had been followed by two consecutive parliamentary elections bringing a strong opposition majority to power against Damascus and Iran. Elections in 2018 represented an opportunity to reshape Lebanon’s political authority, in line with the party’s regional alignment. For this reason, Hezbollah took a visible, opposing stance in confronting the popular uprising. The reality remains however, that the uprising yielded major rifts in the party’s arrangements and alliances, while giving rise to renewed internal incongruities. More critically, it broke through the perception of Hezbollah’s dominance and capability, and by extension that of the Amal movement, to represent the Shi’ite sect and define its political choices.
