The March 8 and March 14 coalitions are gearing up for the Order of Engineers elections in Beirut and the north this Sunday, with Progressive Socialist Party engineers siding with March 8 candidates.The contest will pit a candidate list headed by Refaat Saad, who is backed by the Future Movement and other March 14 parties, against a slate led by Issam Bekdash, who is supported by the March 8 alliance.PSP engineers, whose votes usually tip the balance, will side with the March 8 list. Around 37,000 of 40,000 engineers in the Beirut order have paid their annual subscriptions and are thus eligible to vote.Saad said he would work on improving the professional and socio-economic situation of engineers and preserving health care provided by the order to them.
