Lebanon vote holds little hope for change despite disasters

A giant electoral billboard for Lebanese Sunni billionaire Fuad Makhzoumi who is running in the upcoming parliamentary elections hangs on a building with Arabic that reads: "Our silence will explode Beirut a second time, Beirut needs heart," in Beirut, Lebanon, April 12, 2022. The May 15 nationwide vote is the first since Lebanon's economy took a nosedive and an August 2020 explosion at Beirut's port killed more than 200 and destroyed parts of the capital. Lebanon's various disasters have fueled anger at Lebanon's political elite, but few see any hope that elections will dislodge them. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
