BEIRUT: Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea will be president one day, his wife, MP Strida Geagea, said in comments published Thursday. She added, however, that it is not in the interest of her husband to run for this year’s presidential election.

“I am confident that [Geagea] will be Lebanon’s president one day, and I personally believe in the capacities of Samir Geagea because he does not compromise when it comes to the country,” Geagea said in an interview to Zahle Al-Fatat magazine.

“It is not in the interest of Samir Geagea to run for the election now in light of the divisions in the country,” she said. “[Being elected] president would not matter if he was unable to achieve his aspirations and goals.”

Geagea has said earlier that he will not run for in the presidential election scheduled for May, 2014.

The lawmaker said the LF’s executive committee held a meeting and discussed the possibility of Geagea running for election.

“I gave my opinion during this meeting; some supported his candidacy and others did not, and we will continue this debate,” Geagea said.

“We will have our say in naming the new president and we are working by all available means to make sure the election is held on time.”
