Lebanese Vote Fraud?

BEIRUT () -- Leading members of Prime Minister Rafik Hariri's government appear to have won in a parliamentary election marred by allegations of vote-rigging and intimidation.


Official results from Sunday's vote in the central Mount Lebanon province, the first in a five-phase balloting to elect a new parliament, are expected to be announced later Monday as vote counting continued through the night.


But by early Monday morning, nearly complete results gave a clean sweep for Cabinet ministers and most of their allies.
