Geagea accuses Hezbollah, FPM of pressuring Constitutional Council


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea said Wednesday that Hezbollah and the Free Patriotic Movement are exerting pressure on the Constitutional Council in order to transfer four seats from the opposition to the March 8 Alliance.

"They are trying to manipulate the parliamentary appeals in different regions especially in Tripoli and Marjayoun," Geagea said in a tweet.

He added that their aim is to change the balance of power in Parliament before the presidential elections.
