Geagea will never again accept a Hezbollah candidate after Aoun's 'lesson'
Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea said Thursday that any presidential candidate backed by Hezbollah would lead to "a further collapse."
Geagea reiterated his categorical rejection to the election of Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil or Marada leader Suleiman Franjieh.
He accused again Hezbollah and its allies of obstructing the election of a new president.
"They are obstructing (the election sessions) until the situation worsens in the country, to pressure us to accept their candidate as a better option than vacuum," Geagea said of Hezbollah. "This is unfortunately their logic."
He added that his party will never accept Hezbollah's candidate.
"We have learned from the last time we agreed on the name of General Michel Aoun that any Hezbollah candidate will lead the country to more deterioration, calamities and tragedies," Geagea said. "We will never do it again."
