Future MP Atef Majdalani confirmed that his bloc has no objection to Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea representing the March 14 alliance in the upcoming presidential elections, and said rumors that the Future Movement would support Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun as a presidential candidate were untrue.
“There is someone trying to [stir up trouble] in March 14. [The idea] of Michel Aoun being presented as a candidate by the Future Movement is inconceivable.”
“[We have no objection] to the adoption of Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea as the March 14 [bloc’s] presidential nominee,” Majdalani told Radio Free Lebanon on Tuesday.
He added that rumors claiming the Future Movement would support Aoun as a presidential candidate were false.
“We confirm that March 14 forces will go united to the presidential elections.”
On Tuesday Geagea said, “the Lebanese need a president who does not compromise and who rather takes clear and bold stances and the Bekaa and the North need an urgent security plan.”
