North Lebanon elections snapshotLebanese cast their ballots in the north Sunday in the last round of local polls. Turnout was poor in Lebanon's second-largest city for municipal elections with only around 25 percent of registered voters casting ballots.The district of Batroun saw several heated municipal and mukhtar electoral races, with the village of Tannourine being dubbed the "mother of all battles".The Harb family is one of Tannourine's largest and oldest.Rabih Harb, one of the voters who cast her ballot for the "Tannourine's Decision" list wanted to see an issue based election rather than a political one. Unlike in Tannourine, the atmosphere in Batroun was calm as the electoral battle wasn't a fierce competition.The main list competing for the 15-member municipal council is backed by the FPM President and Batroun native Gebran Bassil and led by current Mayor Marcelino Hark.
