The Hariri tool organization, Al-Yasar Ad-Dimuqrati (its very name is an insult to the real Left everywhere), held an election. The last time it held its founding election, the late Samir Qasir (one of the founders), looked at the audience and told them: No need for elections. I will select everybody. And he did (this account was given to me by Lebanese columnist, Wisam Sa`adah, who attended the event). According to the account in the Hariri rag, Al-Mustaqbal, 353 members voted. So we don't have to wonder anymore: this organization has 353 members (I am sure that Hariri Inc sent them 200 or more to show support and vote to avoid embarrassment).
