NNA - Minister of Interior and Municipalities announced the final results of the legislative elections held in Lebanon for the first time in nine years on Sunday, May 6.
Mashnouq explained that those results were still incomplete and unofficial, and that the official version would be published on his ministry's website within 24 hours.
Congratulating the winners, Mashnouq said that "tomorrow is another day," and that the country had entered a new phase with a new Parliament now. "As an Interior Minister, this is an encouraging and honorable thing, regardless of the winners and losers," he told a news conference, hoping that lessons would be derived in the upcoming polls in 2022, in order not to make the same mistakes.
In response to a question about candidate Joumana Haddad, Mashnouq said that his Ministry had nothing to do with the issue and that it was up to the registration committee to handle it.
Asked about the riot in Beirut streets, he deplored it as "shameful," adding that he discussed the matter with the Prime Minister, the army chief, and the Internal Security Forces; Director.
"The security forces promised to end the clashes immediately." Moreover, he denied the loss of eight ballot boxes, explaining that the lost packages were found eventually. It is to note that the results had been delayed in the North I (Akkar) district, due to a vote recount; Mashnouq announced them today.
