Head of EU mission to Lebanon and a number of ambassadors and representatives of member states met on Wednesday with Minister of Interior and Municipalities, Nohad Machnouk, and congratulated him on the successful mayoral and mukhtar elections.
The delegation thanked Machnouk for allowing representatives of EU embassies to visit polling stations across Lebanon. The representatives noted that the recommendations of the EU mission for monitoring parliamentary elections in 2009 could still be applied, once a new electoral law was decreed.
Machnouk’s visitors stressed that the EU and member states believed that Lebanon was capable of holding legislative elections on the due date, or even prior to that.
