Lebanon’s elections are well known for their intricate political schemes and unorthodoxies. This year’s election is shaping up differently with the bold rise of revolutionary youths driven by the existential need for deep change in the political arena.

Many of these long-standing parties are reorganizing their electoral skills for one more fateful attempt 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 is the list of all the candidates of the West Beirut district running for parliament.
