What Is The National Parliament Building of Lebanon?

Lebanon’s national assembly building is revivalist of orientalism and predated the golden age of the 1950’s that would turn Beirut into the Arab world’s avant-garde capital.

Since its independence in 1926, the electoral laws of the unicameral parliament are based on a confessional quorum.

But as the relative political weight of the confessional groups is a highly sensitive issue, no official census has been carried out since 1932.
