Syria-Lebanon, Politics, 6/1/2005
A source at the Syrian ministry of information denied news that Damascus is interfering in the Lebanese elections in the northern part of the country, noting that these are groundless allegations.
The source added that these allegations come in the course of the media campaign against Syria in the context of elections propaganda made by circles that work for destabilizing Lebanon and Syria.
The Lebanese daily al-Mustaqbal, which is owned by the family of the former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri, attributed to what it called well-informed sources that a three army officer Syrian team, who were within the Syrian security department, and worked in Lebanon during the past years, are running election operations from Tripoli against the opposition lists.
The paper added that the said officers held meetings with several candidates before the elections which will be held in June 19 in north Lebanon.
