Head of Beirut Madinati Ibrahim Mneimneh vowed Tuesday to continue campaigning for the city's development despite the group's loss Sunday in the capital's municipal elections, and promised to protect the people's rights should the new municipal council fail.Beirut Madinati's (Beirut is my city) candidate list was comprised equally of men and women, and was the first secular group to run against the traditional parties who have long controlled the Beirut municipality.Mneimneh said that the final results proved that the people of Beirut want change, and linked the relatively low turnout of voters in the capital to the people's loss of hope for change.
