Report: Possibility of Aoun-Hariri Agreement over Presidency Ended with Suleiman's Term

Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun is keen to maintain contacts between him and Mustaqbal Movement chief Saad Hariri in order to reach an agreement over the presidential elections, reported the Kuwaiti al-Anbaa daily on Sunday.

March 14 alliance sources told the daily however that the possibility of an understanding between the two officials ended with the end of President Michel Suleiman's term.

The FPM sources hoped that the contacts between Hariri and Aoun would yield a positive outcome.

Suleiman's six-year term ended on Saturday with parliament failing to elect his successor due to the ongoing differences between the rival March 8 and 14 camps over the elections.

The dispute prompted the March 8 forces to boycott the majority of the presidential elections sessions.
