For the first time in nine years the Lebanese political scene is mobilising for elections. Although little has changed in the overall makeup of Parliament, the 2018 parliamentary elections exhibit significant differences, with a record 976 registered candidates, 113 of whom are female. A number of both male and female registered candidates, came from outside traditional establishment parties and zu‘ama which have historically dominated Lebanese politics.

Municipal elections in Lebanon are scheduled for Spring/Summer 2010. The current electoral system used for electing members of municipal councils is known as the ‘bloc vote’ system, the same as is used for parliamentary elections in Lebanon; however, no municipal council seats are reserved for any different confessional groups. Political and public debate has now begun to focus on the possibility of introducing an alternative electoral system for municipal elections.
