W460

Interior Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq on Monday announced “final yet incomplete” results of the parliamentary elections that were held on Sunday, noting that the results of the Akkar district are yet to be officially released.

“These results are final but incomplete and unofficial seeing as the Akkar results have not been completed and they do not carry the signature of the relevant authority,” Mashnouq said at a press conference.

Commenting on controversy over the result of the minorities seat in Beirut's first district, Mashnouq confirmed the win of Antoine Bano of the Free Patriotic Movement and the loss of Joumana Haddad of the Koullouna Watani civil society coalition, after her campaign and rival campaigns had announced her victory overnight.

Mashnouq stressed that “no ballot boxes are missing” despite delay in the transfer of some boxes and records.

The minister also announced the win of the candidate Farid al-Bustani of the FPM in the Chouf-Aley district, after media reports had declared Naji al-Bustani of the Reconciliation List as the winner.

Joumana Haddad got ripped off, and mr Mashnouq is covering for the criminals!

What the hell happened with the rest of Mashnouq's press conference? Did the Naharnet guy typing it doze off? I know that Mashnouq's voice is monotonous but this is ridiculous.
