Local Editor

Lebanon's Interior Minister Nohad Machnouk announced that the provisional voter turnout figure of the country's parliamentary elections was 49.2 percent.


"This is a new law and voters were not familiar with it, nor were the heads of polling stations," said Machnouk in a news conference on Sunday.

"Voting operations were very slow," he added.

The latest's figures marked a drop from the 54 percent of voters who took part in the country's last parliamentary elections which was held in 2009.

Machnouk also went on to call on supporters of political parties to avoid celebratory gunfire for the fear of possible casualties.
