The Interior Ministry Sunday distanced itself from inconsistencies in the results of expat voting for Lebanon's recent parliamentary elections after a polling station official claimed scores of votes had not been recorded.However, official results on the Interior Ministry website gave the numbers from her polling station as zero registered and zero voters.A total of 479 polling stations listed on the Interior Ministry website show the same zero results.It added that the ministry's job of handing over the expat votes to the registry committee was carried out in accordance with the electoral law, and that the results – namely the zeroes – were given to the ministry after counting was complete and the figures were published.It took roughly 24 hours for the first results to be announced after the end of the elections on May 6 .
