Independent Beirut Bar elections defined by political affiliations

Lawyers arrive to elect candidates to the Bar Association Council in Beirut, Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018. (The Daily Star/Mohammad Azakir)

This article was amended on Wednesday, November 28 2018

An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that there are 16 people on the Beirut Bar Association’s board, instead of 12. There are 11 Christians on the board, not 15. The article also incorrectly stated that of one of the elected members was with the Free Patriotic Movement and two were with the Lebanese Forces, when only one elected member was LF and two were FPM (one an official candidate, the other backed by the party). The Daily Star regrets these errors.

A version of this article appeared in the print edition of The Daily Star on November 19, 2018, on page 2.
