Election spending

A lot has been made of the fact that huge amounts of money are to pour into Lebanon during the election period. The Election law has for the first time introduced campaign spending regulations.

There is a fixed ceiling at $100,000 for every district. Then there is a flexible ceiling that varies in each district that works on the basis of 4,000 Lebanese Lira ($3) for every registered voter in the district. The information for the spending can be found at the ministry website.
