The Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party – Lebanon Region (Arabic: حزب البعث العربي الاشتراكي في لبنانHizb Al-Ba'ath Al-Arabi Al-Ishtiraki fi Lubnan), officially the Lebanon Regional Branch, is the regional branch of the Damascus-based Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party in Lebanon. Fayez Shukr has been party leader since 2005 when he succeeded Sayf al-Din Ghazi who in turn succeeded Assem Qanso.

The Lebanese branch of the undivided Ba'ath Party had been formed in 1949–1950.[1] [5] In July 1987 it took part in forming yet another front, the Unification and Liberation Front.[6]

In the 2009 parliamentary election, the party won two seats as part of the March 8 Alliance. The parliamentarians of the party are Assem Qanso and Qassem Hashem.[7]
