(MENAFN) Lebanon's main Druze leader, Walid Jumblatt, on Sunday publicly confirmed his son Taymour as his political heir, extending the tradition of dynastic politics that plays a big part in the country's sectarian government.

Jumblatt, the leading politician of the minority Druze community, took off his Palestinian keffiyeh scarf and placed it on the shoulders of his son at a televised rally in the town of Moukhtarain the Chouf mountains.


"Oh Taymour, carry the heritage of your grandfather, the great Kamal Jumblatt," Walid told his son, on the 40th anniversary of the murder of his father.

Kamal Jumblatt was killed in 1977 after opposing the entry of Syrian troops into #Lebanon the previous year. His own father had also been assassinated.
