What to Read on Lebanon’s Proposed 2013 Electoral Law

rai-w-geagea-gemayel-aoun-franjieh-300x199More in-depth remarks and commentary to follow, but for now I thought I’d put up a post containing links to some of the most relevant analysis of Lebanon’s Orthodox Gathering law, which has been passed by legislative committees and is headed to Parliament for a vote. See below:

The OMG Proposal: Proportional Representation Meets Sectarian Nomination

Could the Orthodox Law Be a Boon for Lebanon’s Liberals?

The Myth of Christian Under-Representation

Lebanon’s Real Persecuted Minority

If anyone else reads anything good, post it in the comment section, and I’ll link to it from the main page.

  1. QN, is the idea of a bicameral system, which you advocate, being considered at all? The other question is how long do you think it would take for such a system to be defined, debated, approved, and implemented?
    Others’ opinions on these questions are also welcome. Thanks!

  2. Hi HP

    The Future Movement put forward a bicameral proposal a couple weeks ago. I had a look at the proposal before it came out and offered some thoughts on it. Don’t know if my comments were taken into account for the final version of the proposal. At any rate, it didn’t seem to go anywhere.

  3. There’s a good reference to know the distribution of voters among regions and religions in Lebanon, called People of Leb http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/people-of-leb/id563519565?Is=1&mt=8 .
