Lebanon is an Asian country on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea with a history of several thousand years of civilization

Lebanon is an Asian country on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea with a history of several thousand years of civilization. The region was one part of the Levant and became an independent state after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. The majority of the population is Muslim. Several tribes are living in Lebanon. About 30% of the country's population is Shiite.

Since the early 1970s, with the efforts of Imam Musa Sadr and the formation of the Lebanese Shiite Supreme Assembly and the Amal Movement, the cohesion and influence of the Lebanese Shiites have multiplied, and today Hezbollah is one of the most influential political parties and organizations in Lebanon. It is considered military in Lebanon.

It is a neighbor of occupied Palestine and has been repeatedly attacked by the Zionists and has suffered great human and economic damage. Israel occupied parts of the country, including Beirut, in 1982. In recent years, many Lebanese have migrated out of Lebanon due to feelings of insecurity on the part of the Zionist regime.

The political structure of Lebanon
According to the "sect agreement", the three forces in the country are divided between three main sects (Maronite Christian, Sunni and Shiite). According to the agreement, the presidency belongs to the Maronites, the prime minister to the Sunnis, and the speaker of parliament to the Shiites. Given that orthodox Christians are numerically the second largest within the Lebanese Christian sect, the Deputy Prime Minister and Deputy Speaker of Parliament are selected from this tribe.

This sectarian quota has been considered in more detail in the Lebanese parliament, and the share of other Lebanese tribes, especially minorities, has been taken into account in the parliament. The Lebanese parliament has 128 members, divided equally between Christians and Muslims. This relative division has also been implemented within each of the two Christian and Muslim tribes, and a quota has been set for all 18 Lebanese tribes in proportion to the population of that tribe. According to the constitution, the deputies are elected by direct popular vote for a four-year term.

The president, who is the president, is elected by a two-thirds majority for a six-year term. The President, after consulting with the Members of Parliament and based on the introduction of a majority of one-half plus one of the Members of Parliament, shall nominate the Prime Minister and instruct him to form a Cabinet.
