Workshop on Electoral Dispute Resolution

Workshop on Electoral Dispute Resolution

On June 15, 2017, the Lebanese Foundation for Permanent Civil Peace (LFPCP), in collaboration with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, held a workshop at the Lebanese Parliament in Beirut, titled “Electoral Disputes Resolution in Lebanon: The Current Procedures and Future Perspective” which addressed the processes of dispute resolution pre, during and post elections.

The workshop, held under the patronage of Speaker of Parliament Nabih Berri, included four sessions.  The opening session consisted of a welcoming note from the President of LFPCP, Dr. Antoine Massara, Mrs. Hana Nasser from Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, HE MP Robert Ghannem, and a keynote speech from Mrs. Mireille Najem Chikrallah on electoral dispute resolution from a comparative perspective.

The second session, chaired by HE former Minister Ziad Baroud, addressed electoral dispute resolution during the preparatory phase and polling day; while the third session looked at disputes following the announcement of results, emphasizing the role and responsibility of the Constitutional Council in mediating disputes.  The fourth and final session included a presentation from Dr. Maasara on the workshop’s synthesis along with general recommendations.
