Beirut-Madinati has indeed lost but the big surprise is that the difference in votes was around 15,000 only!

It is also worth noting that the difference was 7,156 votes between Elie Yahchouchi (39,089) who got the least votes on the Beirutis List and Ibrahim Mneimneh (31,939) the head of the Beirut Madinati list. Nadine Labaki got 31,738 votes and was 7,351 from breaching the Beirutis list. Also Beirut-Madinati managed to get twice as many votes as the Beirutis List in Beirut’s first electoral district.

Let’s keep in mind that Beirut-Madinati was up against everyone currently in power.

Thank you Beirut-Madinati!
