Citizens from the Lebanese capital headed to the polls Sunday in the country's first parliamentary elections in nine years, with flag-clad party convoys bringing Beirut traffic to a crawl.Voters cast ballots in the city's two electoral districts – Beirut I with approximately 133,800 registered voters and Beirut II with approximately 340,000 . Elderly voters' problems did not stop there.Roughly 10 percent of voters had turned out at the center by noon.In Beirut II, just like on the east side, voters had issues with the new voting format that came with the 2017 electoral law.The Beirut II polling station saw hundreds of voters streaming in, and a large number of disabled people who had to be carried up the two flights of stairs, with just two Civil Defense workers on hand to help.
