Stage of General Joseph Aoun’s arrival to Baabda getting mature

The presidential election’s scene indicates that we are reaching a blocked horizon, amid fears of a long vacuum that hangs over the presidential seat, especially since each party clings to its proposals, and does not show flexibility that may result in breakthroughs that may bring a president in the near stage.

Since Lebanon is a country of settlements, and has always been subject to regional and international tensions, no one can know what might happen at the last moments, in addition to the American, Saudi and French momentum, that is pressing towards electing a president on the constitutionally set dates.

In this context, follow-up sources in the presidential scene read the signs of the arrival of a non-partisan president from outside the March 14 and 8 camps, and enjoys good relations with all political forces, and his international relations are good with the countries of the West and the Arab Gulf, noting that these specifications are enjoyed by the Army Commander, General Joseph. Aoun.

In response to a question about whether Hezbollah accepts General Aoun as president, the sources told “Sawt Beirut International, that “Hezbollah’s lack of commitment to a clear candidate until this moment indicates that it has not yet determined its stance regarding the nomination of Marada Movement leader Suleiman Franjieh, and that it is open to all the possibilities that might bring a president from outside the confrontational formula, and it has never expressed its objection to General Aoun’s candidacy, but at the same time, it reads the indicators well to build its position on the issue of General Aoun’s candidacy and the possibility of Hezbollah entering into such a reading or settlement.”

The sources confirm that Hezbollah is at the heart of this settlement, and it is consulting in the party corridors to deal with this settlement and take it seriously as an option that can be adopted, if the indicators of the vacuum remain to rise with the inability of any party to insure the winning of its candidate, especially since the numbers in the last session to elect a president, proved that no one is able to resolve the situation. From this perspective, General Aoun’s shares are rising every day, and he is getting closer every day to winning the presidential seat.
