Look at what changed from 1996 [when LADE was formed] to 2010.
LADE asked the Lebanese government to create a committee of experts, civil society representatives and constitutional institution representatives to help formulate a new draft law for municipal reform.
LADE and CLOE observed the municipal elections held all through the month of May and reported that Bassil used his ministry's offices and institutions to back candidates, and that he was heavily involved in leading electoral campaigns in the northern city of Batroun.
LADE had previously expressed its worry that the murder would lead to a delay in the municipal elections.
LADE had 600 observers working in North Lebanon, of whom 329 were permanently stationed at 198 polling stations.
Both the association and experts agreed that polling stations were not ready to receive people with special needs, and LADE said in its statement, "100 percent of polling stations were not equipped to meet the needs of disabled people.
LADE noted a number of violations such as the presence of wrongly numbered envelopes and the absence of seals in some polling stations.
LADE started by urging concerned authorities not to delay the deadlines of withdrawing candidacies at the risk of harming the electoral process.
Samad said that LADE had had representatives in some of the committees' deliberations in order to voice the interests of citizens when it came to changing electoral law.
LADE said it hoped other reforms would be implemented in time for a vote which has already been delayed one month to June this year.
LADE is currently in the process of meeting MPs and submitting proposed changes to the electoral law on behalf of civil society groups, Nassar added.
