Lebanon’s elections are well known for their intricate political schemes and unorthodoxies.
In this election, and with the rise of revolutionary youths driven by the existential need for deep change in the political arena, many traditional parties are reorganizing their electoral skills for one more fateful blow against any tangible change shimmering under the debris.
Lebanon comprises 9 electoral districts, each with a varying number of seats for sectarian representation. For a more detailed look at the status quo, here’s the list of all candidates in the Bekaa II district (West Bekaa and Rachayya).
Note: In the list below, FPM stands for the Free Patriotic Movement of Gebran Bassil, LF stands for the Lebanese Forces Party led by Samir Geagea, PSP is the Progressive Socialist Party of Walid Joumblatt, and Etihad is the Union Party led by former minister Abdelrahim Mourad.
