BEIRUT: Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri Friday said his party rejected any presidential void in Lebanon.

“We reject that the only post for a Christian president in the Arab world ... could be left empty,” Hariri said.

“We will only accept a president that represents the national Christian will and rejects all tutelage except the tutelage of the Constitution,” he added.
