March 14 Lebanese in the US

Members of the March 14 alliance based in the United States have sent an open letter to party officials in Lebanon voicing their displeasure with the new electoral law and requesting that specific preparations be made to accommodate Lebanese expatriates returning to vote in the June parliamentary elections, The Daily Star has learned.

The letter, sent by Serge Selwan of the National Liberal Party (NLP) on behalf "14March-US" and seen by The Daily Star, requests, among other things, the full enfranchisement of Lebanese-Americans and information on tight electoral races.

It also demands that the Lebanese government make arrangements to open Rene Mouawad Airport in Kleiat, in case Beirut's Rafik Hariri International Airport is closed prior to the polls.
