List of Presidents of Lebanon


List of Presidents of Lebanon

This page lists presidents of Lebanon. Though it is not specifically stated in the constitution, an unwritten understanding known as the National Pact (al-mithaq al-watani), agreed in 1943, has resulted in the holder of the post being a Maronite Christian in every electoral cycle since that time. Several of the presidents prior to 1943, while still Christian, came from other, non-Maronite sects.
