Lebanon holds first general election in nine years
Polling stations open early Sunday for the first legislative elections Lebanon has held in nine years. Some 21,000 security personnel will be on duty at the 7,000 polling stations to ensure a calm process, while the army secures surrounding centers and roads. Areas of high “electoral tensions” are marked red on security maps.

I am sure there will be ballot stuffings.
Real free elections in a mudslime country, you are kidding…
And the winner IS…….Hezbollah !
Lebanon is what happens when non- Islamists lose to Islamists.
As a young person, I seriously entertained the idea of leisurely strolls in the market places and bazaars of Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Israel. I had heard such wonderful stories.
Just another dream shot in the foot.
Russia will have to reign Hizballah and Iran in or Israel will do it then it will not be good for Russia economic interes… ie. in Lebanese oil.
