Receiving a delegation of the International Organization of La Francophonie, the Lebanese president welcomed the participation of delegates of the mission as observers in the elections on the 15th.

According to the Twitter account of the Presidency, Aoun thanked the secretary general of La Francophonie for the initiative to send a group of assessors to the nation as proof of the institution’s firm belief in the respect of democracy in Lebanon.

The Lebanese president told the delegation that all measures were in place to ensure a smooth election day.

He stressed the positive presence of 118 women on the list of 718 candidates on 103 electoral lists competing for the 128-seat legislature, which is equally divided between Christians and Muslims.

About 60 percent of the 225,000 Lebanese registered in around 59 countries exercised their right to vote between Friday and last Sunday for the second time in history.

Lebanon called for parliamentary elections in December 2021, after the social outbreak in the fall of 2019 and the explosion of the Beirut Port, which killed more than 200 people in August 2020.
