BEIRUT — The Beirut governorate announced Sunday the launch of an initiative to remove partisan, political and sectarian slogans from the city, following last Sunday’s parliamentary elections.

    • A week after the elections, the city remains awash in an even larger amount than normal of party flags and pictures of candidates.
