    Established by an act of the Chamber of Deputies (Lebanese parliament) in 1967 to form a representative body for Shiis independent of Sunnis. Came into existence in 1969 under the leadership of Musa al-Sadr . Demanded improved defenses in southern Lebanon, provision of development funds, construction and improvement of schools and hospitals, and an increased number of Shii appointees to senior government positions in order to improve living conditions and prospects for future employment for Shiis and provide more proportional representation in government. The Shii intelligentsia, emerging middle class, and traditional elites were actively involved.
