According to escXtra.com Lebanon has not ruled out participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Lebanese EBU member station Télé Liban has said in an email that:
We are not sure yet, however we are working on it and will keep you updated.
Lebanon were due to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005 and had selected singer Aline Lahoud with the song “Quand Tout S’Enfuit”. The country was forced to withdrew when due to Lebanese law they were unable to confirm that they would broadcast the Israeli performance in full which is required by EBU rules. In a statement at the time the EBU said that:
According to Lebanese legislation, Tele Liban is not permitted to broadcast the performance of the Israeli participant, thereby breaching the rules of the Eurovision Song Contest 2005.
The then Head of Télé Liban added that they had not been informed when they signed up for the competition that Israel would be participating in the competition. Further adding that they would not have been allowed to let Lebanese citizens vote for Israel in the competition. Télé Liban were given a fine by the EBU and banned from the competition for three years.
Lebanon was not one of four countries that sent additional delegations to Eurovision 2015 in Vienna who would be eligible to participate in currently or in the future; Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Morocco and Tunisia – More details here.
