Innovation & Think Tank Sessions for a better Lebanon - Part II

Elections in Lebanon are allotted to occur every four years. Every citizen is allowed to vote, but the positions are constitutionally allocated by religious affiliation. In 2014, the Parliament failed to elect a president and extended its own term.

In this session we will discuss:

  • Pillars of electoral systems
  • Pillars of drafting an electoral law
  • The basic standards that secure the general principles in elections
  •  The ramifications of using one of the electoral systems and its requirements
  •  Types of electoral lists
  •  Forms of electoral lists
  •  Electoral systems (majority and proportional)
  •  The effectiveness of both the majority and the proportional systems, and the effect of each system on political parties
  •  Polling booth
  •  Blank ballot paper
  •  Electoral threshold and electoral quotient
  •  Constituency
  • The caveats of adopting multi-representation electoral districts
  •  Table of the size of the representation of political forces in the elections
