Voters in Beirut this week overwhelmingly supported the party led by the son of the assassinated former prime minister Rafik Hariri. All 19 of Beiruts seats in the 128-member parliament went to allies of Saad Hariri. The 35-year-old, a graduate of Washington, D.C.s Georgetown University, was raised in Saudi Arabia, where he ran the familys multibillion-dollar construction empire. But after his fathers death in a February car bombing prompted massive protests against Syrian influence in Lebanon, Hariri returned to Lebanon to take up his fathers cause. Voting will continue in other regions of the country over the next two weeks.
