Voters in Mount Lebanon go to polling stations Sunday to cast their ballots in the second stage of municipal and mukhtar elections, amid signs that some key towns are poised to see fiercely contested battles for the control of local councils. Voting in Mount Lebanon comes a week after the first round of generally peaceful municipal elections was held in Beirut, the Bekaa and Baalbek-Hermel district, the first democratic polls to be staged since 2010 .
