After announcing her resignation on Wednesday as host of “interviews” on Lebanese broadcast channel Future TV, journalist Paula Yacoubian appears to be starting a new chapter in the political stage.

Yacoubian, whose talk show has aired for over a decade on the pro-Hariri channel, said she will be running in the parliament elections set to be held in May.

According to Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, despite her long affiliation with the channel, Yacoubian will be running for a seat with the Civil Society in the first district circle of Beirut in competition to Hariri's Future Movement.

The journalist recently said: “A huge elections project is currently in the works, and before we talk about the chances of losing or winning, we await to inform the people about it”.
