Days before the deadline to form electoral lists, political parties and alliances appear to be taking shape and becoming clearer.Hezbollah and Amal will be heavy favorites against the LF-Future list in Baalbeck-Hermel. The Free Patriotic Movement, Syrian Social Nationalist Party and Minister of State Talal Arsalan will also run lists. In Baabda, the LF and PSP will align against lists backed by Amal Movement, Hezbollah and the FPM. As for the West Bekaa-Rashaya district, an alliance appears likely between Future and PSP, while two other lists will compete for seats – one headed by former minister Abdel Rahim Murad and potentially the FPM. The other, headed by the LF, hopes to find enough allies to form a list by Monday. Sidon-Jezzine appears locked in for an alliance between the FPM and Future against a LF list, and another by Amal and Hezbollah.
