This joint initiative launched by Kulluna Irada and The Lebanese Diaspora Network (TLDN), aims at voicing out the Lebanese expatriates demand to exercise their full democratic right of electing their deputies based on their place of registration. Expatriates who refuse the discriminatory 6 seats assigned by continent/confession are encouraged to address their local Lebanese mission with the below letter.

I, the undersigned, a Lebanese citizen living abroad, have the right to enjoy my full civil and political rights in Lebanon, and my legal and constitutional rights. As such, standing with my Lebanese compatriots, I maintain my intention to vote in the upcoming parliamentary elections, from my place of residence.
I hold on to my right to vote for my home electoral district, on equal standing with resident citizens, as was the case in the 2018 parliamentary elections, and I strongly refuse the discrimination that was established in the electoral law number 44/2017, which states that Lebanese abroad are only allowed to vote for the 6 seats that were created for the diaspora.
I demand that the Lebanese Parliament amends this law and I demand the annulment of all the articles related to the establishment of the 6 seats, particularly articles 112 and 122, as Lebanese nationals abroad should be able to enjoy the same voting rights irrespective of their country of residence.
In this respect, I request from your Excellency to convey this message to the relevant authorities in the Lebanese Parliament and the executive branch of government in Lebanon.
