According to the Ministry of the Interior and Municipalities, the number of voters decreased from 230,466 applications received from the diplomatic representations abroad as they did not meet the necessary legal requirements.

The Lebanese diaspora will open the polling stations on May 6 in the countries that adopt Friday as a weekly holiday, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Syria and Iraq.

For these elections, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs approved 207 polling stations and more than 600 voting booths, data that, according to specialists, may indicate a high voters’ turnout. More than 700 candidates are finally running for 128 seats in the next legislature of the unicameral Lebanese Parliament, which is equally divided between Christians and Muslims.

The residents on Lebanese territory will cast their vote on Sunday, May 15, in a parliamentary election about which people are skeptical amid the rising costs of fuel, medicines and other basic goods.
