At 9 p.m. Tuesday night, the Lebanese Forces' Batroun headquarters was abuzz with activity – volunteers and staffers working late into one of the precious few nights left before Sunday's election.Fadi Saad, the LF's candidate and its former secretary-general, is fighting two other political titans: Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil and longtime Batroun MP Boutros Harb.The three men are vying for Batroun's two seats in Parliament – one will fall on May 6 – making this one of the most important and closely watched races of the election.Saad's campaign boasts some 1,000 volunteers for election day, Bassil's campaign over 700 and Harb's 500 to 600, according to staff from each campaign.On the highway passing through Batroun, motorists are bombarded with billboards for Bassil, Saad and other candidates; only in recent weeks have a few with Harb's face gone up.
