Les territoires du vote au Liban

Abstract : In the current political turmoil in Lebanon, the electoral stakes are high and warrant assessment. The Lebanese electoral system aims to give proper representation to religious minorities. The electoral rolls are based on their territorial location. However, these electoral territories now differ greatly from the population distribution that can be observed on the ground after a century of migration and the civil war. This leads to a disconnection between the electoral territory and the actual country. Consequently, political networking and gerrymandering are key resources in the hands of decision makers.
