Former Tripoli MP Misbah al-Ahdab will announce his candidacy for mayor of Lebanon's second city Tuesday, but the shape of alliances in the upcoming municipal elections there remains unclear.Tripoli native Ahdab, who has a strong supporter-base in his hometown, said he would not commit to any political agreement that may emerge between Future Movement leader Saad Hariri, former Prime Minister Najib Mikati, and other political groups in the city.Some sources stated that the Future Movement, Safadi, and Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya have engaged in talks to form a list if Tripoli's political officials fail to reach consensus on a unified list that brings together all parties.The Tripoli native is a rival of Ahdab and Mikati.Civil society groups in Tripoli are also mobilizing ahead of the municipal elections, holding numerous meetings as they attempt to put together a list that can stand against what they consider to be the undemocratic sharing of political spoils.The number of eligible voters in Tripoli exceeds 199,000 .
