Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea Wednesday blasted his rival MP Michel Aoun for further obstructing the presidential election by proposing Constitutional amendments, which he said only prolonged the vacuum.Aoun proposed earlier this week that the Constitution be amended, allowing the people, rather than MPs, to directly vote for a president.Geagea, a presidential hopeful backed by the March 14 coalition, said Aoun's proposal was untimely and enforced the presence of a vacuum, questioning the former general's motives behind such a idea.Aoun and his allies in the March 8 group have boycotted eight sessions to elect a new president in a bid to pressure the March 14 to agree on a consensus candidate, rejecting Geagea's nomination.
