Safieddine stresses 'consensus' necessary to elect president
Senior Hezbollah official Sayyed Hashem Safieddine on Sunday emphasized that “reality obligates that a (new) president can only be reached through consensus.”
“Whoever wants to label this as a settlement, understanding or consensus is free to call it what they want, but this is Lebanon and this is the nature of solutions in it,” Safieddine added.
“Lebanon must take a decision and select its choices amid the major changes that are taking place in the region. It must come forward to reserve a place in the new equations so that it does not get lost in those equations, whether they come from the region or the world,” the Hezbollah official went on to say.
