A political leader says that the election could be delayed till September, citing the lack of consensus on the presidential candidate.He said that the nomination of Change and Reform leader MP Michel Aoun and Lebanese Forces head Samir Geagea to run in the presidential election contributes to delay in the election process because a tug of war is likely to drag between the political forces, which could also have repercussions that could increase tensions. Geagea's nomination also complicates the election process, the leader believes.He says that Geagea's rivalry with Aoun will leave elections free from other candidates. The most significant meeting was between Hale and Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt, with the two men discussing the nominees for president.Jumblatt has also discussed the presidential election with decision-makers in Paris. He is also likely to discuss elections with Future Movement leader Saad Hariri.
