Lebanon's final round of polling will open Sunday for the 849,305 registered voters across the north and Akkar, in a race that has blurred party lines and crossed establishment politics.Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea dismissed any criticism of the Qobeiyat municipal list his party is supporting. The "People of Qobeiyat" is backed by both the LF and the Free Patriotic Movement, as it seeks to dominate the municipal council of Akkar's largest Christian town. The list was announced on May 21, and Geagea claims that the town is being marginalized.Future Bloc MP Hadi Hobeish attacked the LF and FPM, considering them to be waging a sectarian campaign in his hometown.Hobeish also denied Geagea's allegations that Qobeiyat is being marginalized.Hobeish also stressed that Qobeiyat needed a mayor that was constantly present to better serve the people.
