French diplomacy is in constant communication with Free Patriotic Movement leader Jebran Bassil, informed sources said.

In the latest proposal made to him by France, Bassil has been offered to pick the successor of Central Bank chief Riad Salameh in return for endorsing the Shiite Duo’s presidential candidate Suleiman Franjieh, the sources told Kuwait’s al-Anbaa newspaper in remarks published Sunday.
