Would parliamentary elections’ fate switch?

Political heredity in parliamentary elections is regarded as one of the historical cornerstones around which Lebanon’s political system has been built since 1947. This little country has become a model for leadership transitions from grandparents and dads to children, grandchildren, and relatives.

Comprehensive collapses at the political, economic, and social levels will have a direct impact on the political inheritance, which has become a Lebanese tradition, and will be revived by the parties at every parliamentary entitlement, undermining the principle of equality and equal opportunities stipulated in the Lebanese constitution.

The opposition is outraged at the prospect of portraying some of the political heirs as in the 2018 parliamentary elections.

As a result, it is up to each voter, before going to the polls, to precisely express his or her preference in order to properly select the 128 new MPs.
