March 8 snatched student votes away from March 14 affiliates, attaining the majority of the votes at the American University of Beirut, against the backdrop of an unprecedented result by the Secular Club.To the right stood March 14 supporters; on the left were those of March 8 ."People realized that the sectarian political parties do not look after the students' best interests," Secular Club representative Siham Ammar said. She attributed the success of the Secular Club to growing student frustration with a politically aligned student government. One student stormed into the dean's office, sweating profusely and visibly panting. Concerned administrators implored the student to sit down.
