Lebanon’s Interior Minister Raya al-Hassan announced on Sunday that Tripoli parliamentary candidate Dima Jamal has won the Sunni seat in Sunday’s by-elections.

“In accordance with the provisions of Article 107 of the electoral law, we announce the final official results of the parliamentary elections that took place in the smaller constituency of the city of Tripoli on the basis of majoritarian electoral system. As received from the Higher Registration Committee, Dima Jamali has won with a total of 19387 votes,” announced Hassan from the ministry.

Tripoli’s by-elections were held after the Constitutional Council invalidated the parliamentary membership of al-Mustaqbal Movement candidate MP Jamali after an appeal submitted by rival Taha Naji.

Head of Mustaqbal, Prime Minister Saad Hariri, toured Tripoli on Friday encouraging people for a massive turnout and in a show of support for Jamali.

Jamali is backed by Tripoli’s prominent Sunni figures including ex-PM Najib Miqati and ex-Ministers Mohammed Sadafi and Ashraf Rifi.
