Report: Hariri Says Geagea's Chances to Reach Baabda Limitedإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Al-Mustaqbal Movement leader MP Saad Hariri had said recently that Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea's chances to reach the Baabda Palace faded away.
Al-Akhbar newspaper reported on Saturday that Hariri informed Kataeb party MP Sami Gemayel that Geagea will not reach the presidential palace in Baabda.
Gemayel traveled on Sunday with Geagea on a three-day visit to Saudi Arabia.
It is still unclear whether or not Geagea and Gemayel held a tripartite meeting with Hariri.
Lebanon's political scene has reached an impasse over differences between the March 8 and 14 alliances.
The country has been without a president since the term of Michel Suleiman ended in May as the rival parties have failed so far to agree on a compromise candidate, which is also threatening to torpedo the upcoming parliamentary elections.
The crises are threatening further vacuum at Lebanese institutions, which could also impact the cabinet.
Al-Joumhouria newspaper reported on Saturday that head of al-Mustaqbal parliamentary bloc MP Fouad Saniora, head of Hariri's office Nader Hariri, ex-MP Ghattas Khoury and several other figures discussed with Geagea and Gemayel the political crises upon their arrival in Beirut.
