Resigned Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi was able to trample on Tripoli's mainstream parties in the city's local polls because of their "mistreatment" of the city's people, Arab Tawhid Party leader Wiam Wahab said Tuesday.Official results from the fourth and final round of municipal and mukhtar elections held Sunday in the North Lebanon and Akkar governorates showed that a candidate list backed by Rifi captured 16 seats of Tripoli's 24-member municipal council.Rifi, who previously headed the Internal Security Forces, was a former member of Hariri's Future Movement, before splitting over disagreements related to political issues, such as the presidential crisis.
