Breaking the Mold? Why Ministerial Rotations Cannot Make Up for an Independent Government

Lebanon’s many overlapping crises require immediate and decisive political action to mitigate their fallout on the population. Political responses have always been slow—not only since the government under Prime Minister Diab has resigned in August 2020. Legislative production has historically been low in Lebanon. The average number of laws passed per year from 1990 until 2009 in Lebanon was 80.2 compared to 186.3 for a set of European countries. Sluggish legislative response to changing environments or even crises has repeatedly been identified as a core reason for many of Lebanon’s socio-economic challenges.
