Hezbollah is favored to win in elections in southern Lebanon. Voters going to the polls Sunday — the second stage in a four-round process on consecutive Sundays in Lebanon — are expected to back the fundamentalist group known for its military resistance to Israel’s presence in southern Lebanon, which ended in 2000. Hezbollah is running on a joint slate with Amal, an influential Shi’ite political party.
