I have reverted the move of this page. The de facto Wikipedia format is for lists of presidents, etc. to be titled "List of ..." UNLESS they contain large portions of explanatory text, in which case the "List of ..." drops from the title. David Cannon 22:04, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)

It's OK, I've moved this page because I was planning on expanding this page, so it doesn't just contain a list.500LL 17:05, Jun 13, 2005 (UTC)
Okay, then we'll move the page when you've expanded the article. Just let me know - because it needs an administrator to delete the redirect that has been created. David Cannon 22:30, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Acting Presidents[edit]

Does Lebanon number the Acting Presidents with the Presidents? GoodDay (talk) 22:35, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

yes, it was in the constitution before Taif Agreement 1990, the outgoing president can appoint a military governement(its head should be the armed forces commander (christian maronite like the president religion).

The constitution was made like this because it was made in the period of the french mandate & france wanted a christian president whenever, this thing didn't change (the president must be always christian maronite), in taif agreement they prohibit the outgoing president to appoint a military governement.

Fouad El Sanioura & Selim El Hoss were prime ministers not presidents they were muslim sunnite (prime ministers religion) & both they didn't lead there governement from baabda presidential palace like general michel aoun.

Selim El Hoss was a prime minister. He resign before the outgoing of the president, that's why many people didn't consider him as a prime minister and consider general michel aoun as acting prime minister, so in this period Selim El Hoss was not neither prime minister (many lebanese people) & was not a president.

Fouad Senioura[edit]

he was neither president nor acting president. He was the prime minister --Norik12 (talk) 18:50, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
