63% Favor A Temporary Military Takeover and A Referendum on Lebanon's Identity
The Lebanese people are divided behind their zu'ama (leaders), who always disagree over national and critical matters in order to protect their status and interests. Recently, some politicians called for the need to hold a referendum on the presidential elections and other issues as a means to resolve the current political deadlock. Unlike the Constitution in some other countries, the Lebanese Constitution does not include any article that stipulates the holding of referendums, knowing that the consecutive governments have decided not to conduct even a census to draw a demographic map of the Lebanese population. Information International surveyed the Lebanese on holding referendums over critical matters.
