The official results were finally published online by the Interior Ministry, they included detailed results for every districts and every polling station. The results are all in PDF formats which sucks but fortunately there are few websites that presented them in a more user-friendly matter, like [lebaneseelections.com], and other blogs like [128lebanon] that analyzed the voter turnout percentages between 2009 and 2018.
