With no breakthrough on the horizon in the struggle over the Lebanese presidency, some corners have begun circulating the name of General George Khoury, Lebanon's ambassador to the Vatican, as a possible consensus candidate.Khoury held various military positions, including head of intelligence from 2005 to 2008, before he was appointed ambassador to the Vatican at the start of former President Michel Sleiman's term.Khoury enjoys good relations with most politicians, especially the heads of several blocs, and Christians from both the March 8 and March 14 blocs. Notably, he restored communication with Aoun after the latter's return to Lebanon in 2005, and the two men continue to keep in touch, with Aoun eager to receive Khoury whenever he visits Lebanon.
