Here’s The List Of All Lebanese Women Running For Parliament In Lebanon Elections 2022


Lebanon Elections 2022 is already marking the country’s history despite the uncertain outcome. While some might argue, it is the uprising of the people against the status quo that has yielded changes ever since the Lebanese Revolution took off in October 2019.

Changes did not materialize in the governance arena, yet they went deeper to the base and wider across the nation.

Political stereotypes have been broken and mindsets have evolved, fueling people with the boldness to step up, challenge the once-unflappable, and bring the reforms themselves.

It is a rebellious election event we are witnessing today in Lebanon.

New blood, new voices, and new ideas, and women rising by numbers to claim their rights in governance.

Among the 1,043 candidates, there are 155 Lebanese women who entered the electoral race for parliament, making up nearly 15% of the sum of contestants.

Some of them were compelled to withdraw, and 113 remain, including a 26-year-old political rebel that has stolen the lights as the youngest candidate.

If not by the percentage then by pure numbers, female participation this year is one of the highest in Lebanese history.
