For the first time in years, ambiguity surrounds the Lebanese presidential election in both the Lebanese and international arena, making the poll open to all possibilities, including a presidential vacuum.According to the sources, there is a level of regional understanding about Lebanon, underscored by other countries' interest in not letting the situation in the country deteriorate toward another civil war.Regarding last month's Saudi-American summit, the sources pointed out that, according to information made available to them, the meetings dealt mostly with issues of common interest, including the situation in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, as well as how to fight takfiri and terrorist groups.They did not discuss the Lebanese presidential election, but agreed on the importance of maintaining stability in the country.
