Prime minister of Lebanon

This is a list of Prime Ministers of Lebanon since the creation of the office in 1926. 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 Sunni Muslim in every electoral cycle since that time. Nevertheless, several Prime Ministers in the past have been Christian.
