The scene of pro-Assad voters crowding the polling station in Yarze riled the March 14 coalition with the group's General Secretariat calling on the Lebanese government to expel Syrians whose lives were not in danger.Kataeb Party MP Nadim Gemayel went further, asking the government to expel the Syrian ambassador.The Baabda branch of the Kataeb Party released a strongly worded statement about the Syrian election in Lebanon which it said "brought back memories" of Syrian tutelage.As usual, Lebanese dealt with their issues by making jokes about the crowded streets with citizens exchanging whatsapp messages, urging "Lebanese refugees" to remain indoors and allow Syrians to vote.
