There have been increasing rumors in Lebanon that an agreement is about to be sealed between Saad Hariri and Michel Aoun (who is allied with Hezbollah) to elect the latter as president. However, the presidency is not a slice of cake that two or more parties can agree to share. The election of a president must be properly carried out in parliament. We refuse to be informed of an agreement - be it realistic or impossible - via media leaks reminiscent of the time when late Syrian President Hafez al-Assad said that the Lebanese people had agreed to extend the presidential term of Elias Harawi, despite none of the Lebanese parties having agreed to this.
We strongly reject that the presidency become the property of Hezbollah and the Future MovementNayla Tueni
