    Time for another poll. This time discussing security threats and the elections:

    Do you fear that security problems threaten the organisation of elections on the 7th of June?

    • Yes, elections cannot be held if periodic clashes erupt throughout the country. (56%)
    • No, nothing will stop the electoral process. (36%)
    • I don't know. (8%)

      I don’t think ‘periodic clashes’ would stop the elections, so I voted no.
      However, if there is another May 7th type occupation of beirut or other parts of Lebanon by you-know-who then it would definitely make holding elections impossible.

      That’s the spirit Ramez. Keep it up!

    4. Ibrahim Zebibo says:

      there is a real threat for the elections if the international court of PM Rafic al Hariri announced the names of the criminals who participated in the assassination of PM Rafiq Al Hariri before the elections.

    5. Ibrahim, care to elaborate on that??

      Nothing will stop the elections. There is a strong Lebanese will for them to happen, especially that both sides already think they won. The Intl community also seems to be pushing hard in that direction. Unless an all-out civil war breaks, I dont think the elections are in danger.

    6. Hikmat says:

      I don’t think that both are convinced they won, although they are both saying it. The 7th of May coalition and the Syrian regime need to win this election badly and I am afraid they will use any means necessary to guarantee a parliamentary majority.
      As Michel Aoun is loosing ground, the chances of security problems before the elections are getting higher. Michel Aoun’s opposition to the one-day election as well as the security breaches we witnessed in the past week are, in my opinion, an introduction to a series of events aiming to frighten the christian population and ultimately to postpone the elections.
