Bassil asks Hezbollah for 'national consensus' or 'democratic competition'


The Free Patriotic Movement has agreed with the opposition on a presidential candidate, FPM chief Jebran Bassil said, adding that "the political project has not yet been completed."

Bassil told Kuwait's al-Qabas newspaper that is it necessary to reach an agreement with all parties, including Hezbollah.

He asked Hezbollah not to impose a confrontational president and to go instead to an acceptable national consensus, or to democratic competition in Parliament through voting.

"the communication with Hezbollah is not severed, but there is no meeting soon," Bassil added.
