Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri Tuesday called for the swift election of a president, saying an intra-Christian accord was a prerequisite for the Future Movement to formulate a stance regarding a presidential poll.Hariri said he was not in need of promises in order to return to Lebanon, in reference to Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun's remarks in which he said that he offered to guarantee Hariri's "political security" in Lebanon at a meeting between the two earlier this year.Hariri has remained outside Lebanon since April 2011 for security reasons.He voiced hope that a new president would be elected during the Parliament session scheduled for July 2 . Many, such as Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea, remain pessimistic about the prospect of electing a new president in the near future.Parliament has failed to elect a new president during seven sessions held since April 23 .The March 8 coalition has hinted that it supports Aoun for president. The FPM leader has been engaged in talks with Hariri's Future Movement since January in a bid to win its support for his presidential bid.
