No body wants Aoun as Lebanon president , report


aoun 2Al Safir newspaper reported that  those who met  recently Free patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun were shocked  to hear him say : “Does Hezbollah  really want me to be the next president of the republic ? Does ( MP Suleiman) Franjieh really want me to be the president of the republic?”

As Safir added:   “Aoun’s  visitors  came out with the impression that practically everyone  is against his candidacy for the  presidency….Both his opponents and and his allies .  Nevertheless, Aoun does not want to move on to plan “B” , which calls for finding a consensus president

As Safir quoted the leader of the  Lebanese Forces ” Samir Geagea  as saying :” I am  still waiting for an answer to my  request  for an appointment to meet with Aoun in order to agree on a consensus president   that is acceptable to all parties .” But  As Safir said  Aoun seems to have forgotten about the request.  One of Aoun’s  visitors recently told him:” I  am still waiting  for an answer from you regarding  (meeting with ) Geagea, Aoun responded : “What do you mean, what about the answer?”

The Lebanese parliament failed again on October 9 and for the thirteenth time in a row to elect a president to replace Michel Suleiman whose term ended on May 25.

As in the past sessions the parliament was unable to reach a quorum because the MPS of the Iranian backed Hezbollah militant group and its ally Aoun’s Change and Reform bloc boycotted the sessions.

Geagea who was the first to announce his candidacy for the presidential office blasted the MPs of Hezbollah led March 8 alliance over their failure to attend the session .

“Four months without a president is unacceptable, ” he said during a press conference on October 9.

Assad endorsed Aoun

Syrian President Bashar Assad is the only one who officially  threw his support behind  Aoun’s candidacy  describing him as an “honest man,” and saying he would welcome his election as the next Lebanese president.

In an interview with al-Akhbar daily published on June 11 2014 , Assad stressed that his country does not interfere in the local affairs of any Arab state but nevertheless he added: “Aoun is an honorable and honest man who fought with dignity and reconciled with dignity and remained loyal to his stance towards us despite all the storms.”

“We welcome Aoun’s election as a president for being in Lebanon’s interest and in the interest of friendly ties,” he stressed

The FPM chief is “patriotic, non confessional and believes in the resistance,” Assad added.

Assad’s endorsement came after Aoun  was quoted by Al Joumhouria newspaper as saying last June on  the eve of the presidential elections in Syria  that Assad deserves a Nobel prize for combating terrorism.

      Since Assad is the only one who endorsed him , he should seriously consider moving to Syria. Assad could then appoint him as the president of the territories occupied by ISIS and Nusra . As a former general Aoun would love the challenge …who knows … he may help Hezbollah defeat the takfiris and twenty years from now Hezbollah may reward him and bring him back and appoint him as the Lebanese president . His dream may finally come true.

      I know what you are thinking …he may be dead by then …but dont worry …. that is the exactly the type of president Hezbollah wants for Lebanon

    Time to toss yourself out general dementia.

  3. I think Aoun is the person to be blamed for weakening the christian in Lebanon. His ignorance ,stupidity and ignorance leads him to think that he is a presidential candidate. Even the radicalist hizbullah don’t want him.

  4. Many comedians are on this site. The GREAT is the only one qualified to be a president. Aoun earned the respect of all his advisories, the LA under his command fought the Syrians when they occupied Lebanon and now we became friends after their withdraw. People need to remember that the only beef we had with the Syrians was their occupation.
    Our Great you need no support from anyone except the Lebanese people who support you all way back to ba3bda.

      We need a poem . Did the great stop inspiring you?
      Aoun’s son-in- law Gebran Bassil said today that it makes no difference between having a president or not . In other words a Lebanese president adds zero value to Lebanon . How shameful of him to say such a dreadful thing . May be he had Aoun in mind when he said it.!!!
      He knows his father -in- law better than anyone else I suppose .

      1. That is right, it does not make any difference if there is president or not. It is all because of people like Geagea who supported the Taif which demolished the presidency. Aoun is trying to reinstate that power even if he does not become a president. So stay tuned, we will only agree on a consensus president if Taif is abolished. That does not mean that Aoun have to be a president.

          Is it possible to explain why Aoun and Hezbollah are so scared of Geagea , specially since it makes no difference if there is president or not.

        2. Why do you still have the logic of Geagea and Aoun. I don’t like Geagea, but also I think Aoun is an imcompetant prick. If you don’t like Taef, get a president elected and work on fixing the accord.

    4. Comedy is better for your soul, than blind ignorance!

      All headline politicians, including the great IDIOT Aoun, are the main reason we’re back in the same shit hole (since 2005). These are the same guys that were leading militias and ruining Lebanon during the civil war, and now, all these corrupt criminal mafia heads, want to remain in power at any cost.

      None of these idiots give a rats ass about Lebanon. The ones that do, are six feet under!

    That’s why he is always walking with a corkscrew up his ass. Hezbollah even telling him get M14 approval and we will support you. what does that tell you? We all know by now that hezbollah wants Kahwaji plain and clear and he knows that and he is pissed about it. Even Franjieh doesn’t want him.
    You know what Aoun with change his stance at the end of the day if he’s not elected president. then he will be killed by Iran and they will blame the Jihadists or Israel of course..
