During the era of 1930s-1940s, Lebanon became suddenly more politically active. It started counting the number of people of every religion in 1932 with the aim of creating the power-sharing confessionalism system. The agreement would come to be signed nine years later, in 1943.
Lebanon was a land of foreign conflicts during those years, with the Allies troops on its ground, and many historical events, including Lebanon finally electing its first president, Bechara El-Khouri.
Soon after, Lebanon became a founding member of the United Nations, (UN San Francisco Conference of 1945), taking its rightful role among the independent nations and getting involved in regional and international affairs.
