Unlike the uncontested victory in 2010, the Bazouriyeh municipal election was marked this year by intense competition between the Communist Party and the Amal-Hezbollah coalition. Despite being the hometown of Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah’s popularity is far lower there than that of the Amal Movement and the Lebanese Communist Party. 

2010 Elections
In 2010, the list backed by the alliance of the Amal Movement (four candidates including the head of the municipality and his deputy), Hezbollah (six candidates) and the Communist, Syrian Social Nationalist and Baath Parties (five candidates) won by acclamation. 

2016 Elections

In 2016, the Communist Party departed from the previous alliance of 2010 and formed instead a list with the families of the town, thus imposing a competition between two major lists:
- The "Development and Loyalty" list backed by the Amal Movement, Hezbollah and the Syrian Social Nationalist and Baath Parties

- "The Bazouriyeh" list backed by the Communist Party and local families.

The first list won 1,342 to 662 votes, or 56.8% to 28.1%.
