“There was little drama about the outcome. Pre-election horse-trading and backroom alliances meant that nine of the 19 seats were uncontested, and there was little real opposition … for control of the rest. Outside polling stations, voters were handed small squares of paper with [a] political list written on them, making voting as easy as stuffing the pre-printed ballots into brown envelopes ready for the ballot box.”

Hariri won that election.
