Read this story in English W460

تبلّغ "تيار المستقبل"، أن رئيس "التيار الوطني الحر" النائب ميشال عون لن يُقدم على خطوة الترشح الى رئاسة الجمهورية "ما لم يتأمّن التوفق حوله".

فقد كشفت صحيفة "الجمهورية"، الثلاثاء، ان لقاء جمع وزير الخارجية جبران باسيل (عن التيار الوطني الحر) ومدير مكتب رئيس "تيار المستقبل"، نادر الحريري، خُصّص للبحث في آخر المعلومات المتداولة حول الإستحقاق الرئاسي.

وأشارت الى ان باسيل ابلغ الحريري رفض عون أن يُعتبر ترشيحه في مواجهة رئيس "حزب القوات اللبنانية" سمير جعجع، وأنّه "لن يقدِم على هذه الخطوة ما لم يتأمّن التوافق حوله".

يُذكر ان الحريري، يقوم بجولة على عدد من المسؤولين لبحث الاستحقاق الرئاسي، قبل أن يتوجّه الى الخارج للقاء رئيس "تيار المستقبل" سعد الحريري وإطلاعه على حصيلة لقاءاته في لبنان.

وكان نادر الحريري، قد التقى جعجع، واكد الطرفان على "متانة العلاقة" بين الطرفين غداة اعلان جعجع ترشحه للانتخابات الرئاسية.

وأعلنت الهيئة التنفيذية في القوات اللبنانية، يوم الجمعة الفائت ترشيح جعجع لرئاسة الجمهورية، ليكون بذلك، أول المعلنين عن ترشحهم في حين ان قوى 14 آذار التي تؤكد خوضها المعركة الرئاسية بمرشح واحد، لم تعلن بعد عن اسم هذا المرشح.

وصباح الثلاثاء، أعلن المكتب الاعلامي لجعجع، ان النائب السابق غطاس خوري زار معراب مساء الاثنين موفدا من الحريري، جرى خلاله البحث في الاستحقاق الرئاسي.

وشدد اللقاء "المطول" على "ضرورة الحفاظ على وحدة قوى 14 آذار في هذه المرحلة لإيصال مرشح موحد من قبلها الى سدة الرئاسة".

وأضاف البيان ان المجتمعين أجروا "جولة أفق حول الأوضاع السياسية العامة في لبنان والمنطقة".

God bless General Aoun.

Karim bro, if let's say Geagea was allied to Hezbollah today, would you also be saying, God bless Hakim? The truth is that we humans tend to take God for granted, and we come up with things like God bless this or God bless that....Who are we to utter His almighty name when we know so little about the Almighty's WILL? people like Aoun, or Geagea or even Sayed Hassan are just mortals, humans. They fight for causes that can hurt an entire nation, and that leave deep scars on society. One can say, God bless Messi, or Ronaldo, or Barca, or Real De Madrid, fair enough, but to ask for blessings for politicians? How can we lend God will to human nature, do we owe Him or isn't the opposite more of the truth. Let such people repent and pray, and pray sincerely, for their sins are many, atonement does not come easy for such people, unless heaven is a very unfair place.

Not even the terror party supports your bid for presidency. You are not good enough for them. They want Franjieh, the illiterate.

Well said Aquaii, alas, the Lebanese will never learn. These two oligarchs, these two criminals, these two utterly selfish have caused so much pain yet, it seems feel that the last round wasn't enough, this time they want to finish what they started decades ago. As if it was wrong for us to heal our wounds.

Thumb FlameCatcher 13:01 ,2014 نيسان 08

Democracy at it's best ! Aoun will only present himself if he's the only candidate because he's scared of competition or losing !

DICTATOR.

And all Aounies here are idiots to believe there is anything democratic or patriotic about Aoun !

Thumb FlameCatcher 14:48 ,2014 نيسان 08

Being the only candidate means obtaining power by force. Most dictators in fact obtained power without a single drop of blood.

Look at your Bashar for example ! A beacon of democracy is he ?

Thumb FlameCatcher 14:51 ,2014 نيسان 08

This is irrelevant. Each party must present candidates and a vote should take place.

In fact, each party must have their "leader" prior to parliamentary election on the basis of which they earn votes for their MPs. MPs are representative of the people and their party leaders when possible can be eligible as candidates for the presidency.

Our current parliament is obsolete however and should be replaced BEFORE electing the next president.

Thumb FlameCatcher 15:32 ,2014 نيسان 08

It's not hate. It's realising the truth after so many years.

I was and remain a Aounist to this day.

It seems Aoun is no longer a Aounist however and has lost his ways since he came back to Lebanon !

Thumb FlameCatcher 17:40 ,2014 نيسان 08

It's irrelevant because whether the president is voted by the people or MPs, the president is representative of the people.

The problem is the schedule of the current elections and the president being voted by an obsolete parliament.

In any case, any presidential candidate should be supported by parties and they should conduct public debates and present their "program" to the people.

In fact, presidents are normally "party leaders" and as such are the main drivers of votes for the party MPs.

So this is why I feel whether we vote directly or not is irrelevant. I do prefer voting directly but indirect votes should not excuse candidates from conducting campaigns and competing to bring a semblance of democracy to the parody of democracy that is lebanon.

but roar said " You are by far the chosen leader of the Christian sect" so it must be true. so why is he not enlightening us on his presidential agenda? before the vote? or doesn't he care? Is he just interested in making deals with the MP's to gain le brezidency without telling us what he has in mind? very democratic ..I think not..

Walaw ya Roar, heyda li be2yi beyni wou beynak? You are putting me with Bani on the same boat? bani is a nutcase, I am not. Bani is like his other half, Jombie, twists and turns every single day, I am consistent with my positions. From the very beginning, I knew your leanings and I respected them, and still respect them 100%, even if as you know I have no appetite for old man Aoun, not now, not ever. Have you seen how I debate with our Shiite siblings? have I not been most frank with them, yet kept respecting them, Even them did not have your words for me. I just felt that today you were more Lebanese than Australian by lavishing so much praise for the old man and I did it with a touch of humor. Anyway Roar, a brother is a brother, and this is how it will stay for me and you.

what do you mean by Aoun/Frangieh combined?

Thumb arzak-ya-libnan 18:53 ,2014 نيسان 08

Who is the Christian leader? Aoun? Who has about 40% of the Christian vote? M14 Christians including mustaqbal elected Christians who make up about 50%? We Christians are the laughing stock of Lebanon. We are as divided as divided can be. And everything is being done to ensure we remain weak and divided. Fpm MPs are inflated because of the Shia vote in jbeil and Baabda. M14 is inflated in the north. Aoun is not a strong leader because he us part and parcel of this division along with every m14 Christian leader as well. Jumblat is a strong leader because he united his people. HA is a strong party because it unites its people. And mustaqbal are strong because they also unite. Each of those parties are by far the strongest in their sect. What are we??? Nothing. Divided. And with all due respect. Divided because someone changed his orange book. Can you imagine what we could have been?

Again roar. I do not speak of anything without personal experience. I was personally offered a ticket by the fpm when I was in Dubai. And even my uncle. An fpm party member and official said he can throw in a hotel.

Brother Wolf, Bani is exactly as I described him, a softy gay with many machines and time to him. He keeps appearing under many aliases, but I noticed one thing, the one he originally used had to be kept intact, the Bani Maarouf one, or the one that reflected the Druze one, that was to be preserved, the rest? he made them under different names, but his knack and love for Geagea kept betraying him. The cream on the cake remained, his inherent and unmistakable hatred of the LF and Bachir Gemayel. I caught the gal long ago.

roar , reality check brother " You are by far the chosen leader of the Christian sect" lets face it almost all aouny's love the very general aoun out of their hate for the Lebanese forces. He has not and will never be a benefit to Lebanon.In fact it has now become very evident his support base particularly amongst 18-35's is dwindling as they have come to see past his "I am greater then thou" speeches and realise he cannot deliver what he preaches. In fact his support base in my opinion is what is destroying the Lebanese as they choose to follow blindly knowing he leads them nowhere out of their spite for geagea and the lf. One could say they are cutting off their noses to spite their ace. This view is clearly demonstrated by the M8 marketing department on naharnet they feel compelled to go on the defensive everytime he opens his hole as they surely know he makes little sense and are not convinced entirerly.
