Would Lebanon experience the Iraq scenario?

So far, the scene is still hazy… However, a quick comparison of the Lebanese and Iraqi scenes, particularly the results of the Lebanese parliamentary elections and the tangible change in the balance of power in Parliament, may cause some to fear that the same Iraqi scene will be repeated in Lebanon, “ie moving toward a presidential and governmental vacuum”…

In Iraq, after more than eight months, the country is still suffering from a constitutional vacuum in the presidency of the republic and the government in light of the incompatibility of political forces, especially with the refusal of pro-Iranian groups to acknowledge their defeat in the early parliamentary elections that were held in October The first is 2021.

Will Lebanon become ethnically divided, or will international pressure and assistance prevent it?
