Antonine University cancels student elections
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Antonine University canceled its students elections Friday due to political disputes among its students. 

The elections were set to take place Saturday at the school. The move came after Lebanese Forces announced a boycott of the polls.

According to the LF statement, Antonine University’s electoral law is structured to favor Hezbollah and the Free Patriotic Movement. 

Hezbollah supporters are estimated to comprise 40 percent of the school, and thanks to their alliance with the FPM, the March 8 bloc was expected to win by an easy majority. 

“Since the main target of the elections will not be fulfilled … The university sees itself obliged to cancel the elections.” 

The university statement said. The decisions regarding the elections for the coming years will be issued according to the background of the electoral campaigns and its targets.”
