Lebanon is gearing up for what has been called an historic election on June 5, with Canada joining other international observers in making sure the vote runs smoothly. On May 19, Foreign Affairs Minister Pierre Pettigrew and International Cooperation Minister Aileen Carroll announced that 20 Canadian observers will be sent to the Middle Eastern nation to monitor the four-phase elections expected to begin on May 29, lasting for three consecutive Sundays until June 5. Liberal Senator Mac Harb, a veteran of numerous international election observer missions and former a politician himself, is one of the Canadian observers. He departs for Beirut on May 25.
