Lebanon, for the second day, is without a president and is being run by an unrepresentative government. There's no democracy in Lebanon instead there's a power-sharing arrangement that allocates each religious group or sec a certain position; so the president is Christian maronite, the PM is a Muslim sunni and the speaker of the parliament is Muslim shia.
The Christian maronites are uneasy with the fact that the position of president is vacant and - for the time-being - run by the a Muslim, prime minister Siniora. The shia have withdrawn from the government though they're the biggest religious group in Lebanon. But the country remains peaceful and calm in this difficult circumstance.
I'll post more on this later.
