Quick and dirty guide to Lebanese elections

The Lebanese elections will occur on Sunday June 7. Despite the rather convoluted and twisted nature of Lebanese democracy, the endemic corruption and the continual pushes for changes in nature of the electoral system, the results of this election are very much up in the air.

Latest election polls show that a few seats and districts either way could swing the results from the government to the opposition. (For considerations of space, I'm leaving out a lot of detail but I'd like you to finish reading this diary before the elections tomorrow!) Follow me below the fold as I go through the players and give my views on likely outcomes. HERE THE COMPLETE GUIDE
