Barely 90,000 Lebanese Expats Registered to Vote

The Ministry of Overseas Affairs and Emigrants introduced yesterday unofficially that over 85,000 Lebanese registered on-line to vote within the upcoming elections. The minister appears to be proud in regards to the quantity however I believe it’s a really low turnout on condition that the marketing campaign has been ongoing for over two months now.

In actual fact, if we assume that the Lebanese diaspora is round eight million and that half of them are eligible to vote, barely 2% of them registered on-line. However, it’s nonetheless higher than nothing but when the federal government and ministry are critical about getting expats to vote, they need to throw in more cash and incite Lebanese embassies and communities worldwide to get individuals to register.
