Despite the abundance of political discussions concerning the presidential elections, the issue has nonetheless become monotonous. Wednesday's Parliament session will not have the necessary quorum, and so a vote will not take place as it did last week – Speaker Nabih Berri is calling it simply because it's his job. Presidential candidate Jean Obeid took part for a while but has now left, while Health Minister Wael Abu Faour has arrived as part of Progressive Socialist Party head Walid Jumblatt's delegation.The official indirectly suggested that current talks with the Future Movement were leaning toward the notion that no known candidates from either side would make it to the presidency, but rather a new consensus candidate would emerge in accordance with developments in the region and in the country.The Hezbollah official did not respond to questions about whether he preferred Obeid or Army chief Gen. Jean Kahwagi as a presidential candidate.
