MTV quoted its sources as saying that Free patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun is opposed to the extension of the term for army chief General Jean Kahwaji when he reaches the retirement age because he is a leading candidiate for the presidency of the republic and this poses serious threats for his ( Aoun’s) own chances.
