BEIRUT: Head of the Free Patriotic Movement MP Michel Aoun left for Rome Sunday where he is scheduled to meet with Pope Francis at The Vatican.

Aoun, a former Army general, departed from Rafik Hariri International Airport to the Italian capital.

The MP’s visit comes amid a flurry of political activities aimed at breaking the deadlock and forming a new government in preparation for the upcoming presidential election.

President Michel Sleiman’s six-year-term in office expires on May 25.

Sleiman insists on forming a new Cabinet regardless of whether rival groups agree on a government lineup. He also opposes an extension to his term.
