FILE - Ramy Finge, a dentist spent two years braving tear gas and rubber bullets during anti-government protests, is one of 13 independent newcomers who won a seat in the latest parliamentary elections, speaks during an interview with The Associated Press, at his home in Tripoli, north Lebanon, May 24, 2022. The Lebanese Constitutional Council approved two elections appeals on Thursday, Nov. 24, 2022, and unseated two parliamentarians, including Finge, one of a handful of independents elected in May, who identify with the country's mass anti-government protest movement that started in late 2019.

BEIRUT (AP) — Two newly elected Lebanese lawmakers, including an activist who had pledged to fight corruption, lost their parliament seats on Thursday following an appeals process before the country's constitutional council.

Ramy Finge, a dentist and pro-democracy activist from the northern city of Tripoli, was among 13 independent candidates who had won seats in Lebanon's parliamentary elections last May, unseating opponents from Lebanon's traditional parties.
