Municipal elections are held every six years and polling day for local and mukhtar elections in Sidon are scheduled for May 22 .On the 68th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, marked on May 15, Saudi said that Sidon fosters the Palestinian cause.The "Developing Sidon, Sidon Forward" list is up against fierce competition from the "People's Voice" list, which is backed by the Popular Nasserite Organization Secretary General Osama Saad and headed by Bilal Shaaban.Former Prime Minister and Sidon native Fouad Siniora, Sidon MP Bahia Hariri and Secretary-General of the Future Movement Ahmad Hariri all attended the ceremony, as did Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya's leader in south Lebanon Bassam Hammoud.
