This is a list of Speakers of the Parliament of Lebanon since the creation of the office in 1922.

National Pact[edit]

Though it is not specifically stated in the constitution, an unwritten understanding known as the National Pact, agreed in 1943, has resulted in the holder of the post being a Shi'a Muslim in every electoral cycle since that time.
