Parlamentswahlen im Libanon: Lehren und Entwicklungsszenarien

Die Wahlergebnisse spiegeln den Wunsch der Menschen im Libanon nach Reformen wider. Werden sie diese auch bekommen?

Die Parlamentswahlen im Libanon haben für einige Überraschungen gesorgt. Die Mehrheit des Parteienblocks um die Hisbollah ist gebrochen. Der Rückzug des mehrmaligen Premiers Saad Hariri und seiner Partei Future Movement hat darüber hinaus zu einer Demobilisierung der sunnitischen Wähler geführt. Neue sowie etablierte Oppositionskräfte und unabhängige Kandidaten gehen indes gestärkt aus den Wahlen hervor. Nun stellt sich die Frage, ob es der fragmentierten Opposition gelingt, eine Allianz zu formen, die personelle und inhaltliche Alternativen anbietet, ob es zu einer Art Einheitsregierung kommt oder ob das Land in einer politischen Paralyse verharrt.

Since the declaration of independence of Syria and Lebanon, and the first tracing of the borders between the two countries, many issues have arisen around the accuracy, the reality, and respect of this borderline.
