International Election Observors

There are many international election observation missions coming to Lebanon and coordination will no doubt be a challenge. However, there is a deceleration of principals for International observer missions that also contains a code of conduct.

International Election Observers for the 2009 elections:

European Election Observation Mission - Observed in 2005.

The EU have kindly published the terms of reference for the core observation team members. Further to this, there is the election observers handbook

Carter Center - First time observer in Lebanon

National Democratic Institute
- Started observation mission in 1996.

Russian Observation Mission (TBC)- First time observer in Lebanon

Arab League Observation Mission

Further to this many smaller observation missions are expected and embassys have also sent observation missions. In 2005 the Canadian embassy sent an observer mission for example.
