Geagea: no one abroad cares if presidential elections take place, except for Iran

Samir Geagea, the head of the Lebanese Forces Party, emphasized on Saturday that nobody outside of Iran is concerned about whether or not there are presidential elections.

According to Geagea, “No foreign country is genuinely interested in whether or not the presidential elections in Lebanon will take place, and if they do, they are unconcerned with the results of the election.”

“The Iranians can influence this event through Hezbollah, which has a parliamentary bloc, but for other countries, how can they influence?,” he asked.

“What determines the direction of the presidential elections are the local parties, and only Iran among foreign countries can influence and that exclusively through Hezbollah, no more or less, and if the party has only two deputies, the size of its influence will be equivalent to only two deputies,” Geagea concluded.

Geagea’s words came during his meeting, at the party’s headquarters in Maarrab, with a group of activists.
