DescriptionNationalist Maronite Catholic party named after the 'Marada', warriors who fought for the Byzantine Empire as the Ottomans were closing in. Started off as a militia in 1967 becoming a party in 1991. Party is based in the Christian city of Zgharta (Tayyār Al-Marada, shortened to 'el Marada').

Movement has been led since 1982 by Suleiman Tony Frangieh, a former Marada Brigade chieftain who took over when his father Tony Frangieh was assassinated in 1978. Frangieh's grandfather was Suleiman Frangieh, president of Lebanon at the outbreak of the Civil War in 1975.

Marada is part of the Amal-Hezbollah Bloc in Parliament and has close ties to the Al-Assad family in Syria.
