Lebanese Forces (LF) leader Samir Geagea announced that his party’s parliamentary bloc “will continue to back MP Michel Mouawad’s nomination” for the presidency.
“He represents a choice and project that resemble us in terms of his understanding of national sovereignty and his faith in building a state and a non-corrupt administration,” Geagea said during a meeting with French Ambassador to Lebanon Anne Grillo in Maarab.
He stressed the must to elect a president who would be a real and non-weak statesman, and who can at least run the state’s administrations with wisdom, firmness, and transparency away from corruption.
He noted that the new president must also be able to “monitor the border and halt smuggling.”
“We want a sovereign president who can take decisions and who does not accept harm against Lebanon’s higher interests, especially Lebanon’s relations with our Arab brothers and friendly countries,” the LF leader stated.
