Tashnag advertises a confusing message for the elections

There is a saying "el Arman ma3 el dawle" (the Armenians are with the government) - since Lebanon has a Armenian population which landed here following the genocide, usually the Armenian electors favor to remain pro "government" for stability reasons. Which makes the message of the Tashnag - one of the three big Armenian parties (along with the Hunchak and Ramgavar) - a little confusing. The hand with the party logo is joining the one with the Lebanese flag on it. What it means in practice is at this stage a little beyond me, perhaps because I made a conscious decision no to follow the news daily - but frankly, I am scratching my head a it here.
