Lebanese Speaker Nabih Berri Casts his Vote in Tibnin, Bint Jbeil District

Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri voted this morning, Sunday, at Nabih Berri Official High School in Tibnin, Bint Jbeil District, while adhering to electoral silence.

Unews has been covering the electoral process in different Lebanese regions since its launch, and will keep reporting until the votes are count and results announced.

Polling stations have opened across Lebanon for the 2022 parliamentary elections. Queues had started to form outside public schools where polling stations have been set up.

The vote, which ends at 7:00 p.m. could be decisive in determining the future of the country given the dire economic situation.

3,663,518 eligible voters will elect 128 Parliament members, with 718 Lebanese candidates are running for elections.

North Lebanon II (Tripoli, Minieh, Donniyeh) registered the largest number with 11 lists while the third district of Southern Lebanon registered the smallest number (3 lists). The Beirut II (Ras Beirut, Minet el Hosn, Dar El Mrayse, Mazraa, Msaytbe, Zkak El Blat, Bachoura, Port) registered ten lists while the Bekaa I (Zahle) came third with eight.

The first phase of the parliamentary elections was held last week for expatriates on May 6 and 8. More than 140,000 out of 225,000 Lebanese registered voters took part in the electoral process.

Nearly 13,000 Lebanese expats voted across 60 countries earlier on May 6 and May 8.

Lebanon’s president has urged the Lebanese people not to waste their opportunity to vote.

Addressing the nation, Michel Aoun said the Lebanese people should “choose those whom you trust and whom you find worthy of defending your rights and passing the laws that safeguard and protect them”.

“Voting is not merely a right; it is also a duty for every citizen, and it is the correct and actual road to change,” Aoun said.

“This is your chance; do not waste it, especially in light of the facts that have been unveiled in the past two years, and the lies that have been exposed, and now that corruption and embezzlement have faces and names.”
