Lebanese Cast Their Ballots in The Parliamentary Election

Published May 15th, 2022 - 09:40 GMT

Many Lebanese are heading to the nearest poll station to cast their votes in the parliamentary election which is the first since the start of the economic crisis of 2019. According to the Ministry of Interior, the voter turnout reached 14.6% by 11:00 am. The Lebanese army was also deployed across the country to manage the parliamentary election process. The country's latest general election was in 2018 after being delayed three times. Following the 2018 elections, Lebanon fell into deeper economic woes due to the covid-19 which hit the country starting 2020 and followed by the Beirut Port blast in August of that year.
