With more than a month to go for the municipal and mukhtar elections in south Lebanon, all signs indicate that a fierce battle for the control of Sidon's 21-member municipal council is inevitable. The chances of reaching an electoral agreement among various political parties in Sidon have apparently been dashed after the city's Mayor Mohammad Saudi decided to seek another term, backed by the Future Movement and Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya, while former Sidon MP Osama Saad, head of the rival Popular Nasserite Organization, vowed to contest the municipal vote, rejecting any consensus or alliance with the Future Movement and its allies. Sidon's former Mayor Abdel-Rahman Bizri has not yet decided on whether to contest the elections, even though he tends to support an electoral consensus. Municipal elections are held every six years to select mayors and mukhtars, or local government officials.With regard to the Future Movement's preparations for the municipal elections, Sidon MP Bahia Hariri is devoting more than two hours a day to meet and consult with notables and organizations on the city's affairs and projects based on a review of the electoral program that led to the election of the current municipal council led by Saudi.
