The Facts

On Sunday, Lebanon held its first parliamentary election since both the 2020 Beirut blast and the country’s economic collapse, a collapse which plunged the majority of its population into poverty.
A total of 718 candidates from 15 electoral districts are contesting the elections for a seat in Lebanon’s 128-member parliament.
The Iran-backed and heavily armed Shi’ite Muslim group, Hezbollah, and its allies won a parliamentary majority in 2018 with 71 seats.
Preliminary election results indicate that Hezbollah has secured at least 20 seats, while the Hezbollah-allied Free Patriotic Movement appear to have secured up to 16 seats.
The final results of the election are due to be released on Monday 16th.
