The leader of the Lebanese Forces Party Samir Geagea and the head of the Future Movement Saad Hariri issued a joint statement to Lebanese lawmakers, urging them to attend the parliamentary session in order to elect a president.

Saad Hariri has returned to Beirut after a long hiatus outside of the country and upon his arrival, he reportedly met with several Lebanese politicians to encourage them to elect a new president.

According to the National News Agency (NNA) of Lebanon, one of the former Prime Minister’s first meetings was with Samir Geagea in the town of Ma’areb whereby he maintained that the presidential vacuum was a “disaster.”

Hariri added “what is important now is to head to the Parliament and elect a new president.”

Geagea also urged the lawmakers to choose a new state head, arguing that the March 8th camp now has no excuses to delay a vote.

The Lebanese Forces leader stated “martyr Rafic Hariri was assassinated because he wanted to build a country the right way, and a real state; this is why we need to return to the basis. And our meeting today is only a step of the way.”

Hariri has indicated that alongside his father’s killing, he and Geagea were still part of March 14 forces. “What I meant yesterday in my speech was that Lebanon would have been better if reconciliations took place earlier,” he explained.

“We must urge everybody to head to the Parliament; this is the real constitutional right that each MP must assume,” he corroborated.
