The EU EOM Lebanon 2018 visited President Aoun on Tuesday to present the final report and recommendations regarding May’s elections and discuss their implementation progress.

EU EOM Lebanon 2018 considers it important to grant the Supervisory Commission for Elections full financial and administrative autonomy, empowering it to investigate fully cases of non-compliance with campaign regulations and to impose sanctions.

In addition, they want to ensure that men and women enjoy equal civil and political rights. To do so, they suggested amending the nationality law to allow women to confer their Lebanese citizenship to their children on the same basis as men.
