Lebanon Constitution

Tomorrow I leave for Beirut as part of an IFES team to review the constitutional proposals by the 'Boutros Commssion.' I am (surprise, surprise) the electoral systems guy. The Lebanese 'confessional' legislative electoral system (64 Muslim, 64 Christian seats) has long been discussed, vilified and applauded in each measure. After the Hariri assassination they are considering institutional reform across the spectrum. As yet I cannot reveal what the new electoral system proposals are: but they are interesting! ;)
