Lebanon has failed to elect a president and a legislature over the past years, but democracy is still in good shape at the Lebanese American University where preparations for Friday's student elections at the Beirut campus are feverishly underway.Mirroring the country's current political divisions, the race will pit lists of March 14 student candidates, backed by the Future Movement and Lebanese Forces against March 8 rivals supported by Hezbollah, Amal, the Free Patriotic Movement and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party under the respective names of "Step Forward" and "Change Our Future".Although there are no Lebanese Forces candidates this year, students affiliated with the group will back the party's alliance with the Future Movement.
