Universite Saint-Joseph will hold its first student elections in two years Monday, as nationwide political tensions simmer down and pave the way for student-oriented political expression. Fouad Maroun, USJ's secretary-general, seemed optimistic regarding the upcoming elections, as he elaborated on the procedures the administration had set up to ensure a peaceful democratic process. The contest will pit March 8 student candidates against rival students affiliated with the March 14 alliance, but under a calmer atmosphere."These are all complimentary producers ... what is essential is that each party accepts different opinions and acquiesces to the results of the elections," Ahmad Mhanna, head of Hezbollah's Youth Department, told The Daily Star.He said it was important that the university had reinstated the student elections. Denyan seemed confident that no such insults would occur in the upcoming elections.Antoun Soueid, Free Patriotic Movement president, also voiced hope that this year's elections will be different.
