Future MP Mohammad Qabbani told Future TV that Free Patriotic movement leader MP Michel Aoun is boycotting the municipal election in Beirut because he clearly knows that his chances of winning are very poor.
Qabbani added : Aoun is participating in the Mukhtar election in Beirut because he sees better chances.
Qabbani defended the fact that the whole of Beirut will be one district in the municipal election” because we consider Beirut as one united and indivisible capital. “
