Christian leaders in 'secret' talks with Taymour Jumblat


As part of the preparations for the June 14 presidential election session, “secret contacts” have been held between Christian leaders and Democratic Gathering chief MP Taymour Jumblat to discuss the issue of supporting the candidate Jihad Azour, ad-Diyar newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Media reports have said that the Democratic Gathering might resort to blank ballots or might split its votes between Azour and Suleiman Franjieh so that outgoing Progressive Socialist Party chief Walid Jumblat does not dismay his longtime ally and friend Speaker Nabih Berri.
