BEIRUT: Health Minister Wael Abu Faour said Friday that his bloc is concerned over a possible presidential vacuum if the gap between political rivals cannot be bridged.
“The National Struggle Front was hoping that the formation of the government would result in a certain dynamic to create an understanding between Lebanese [parties] on [the need to] hold the presidential election,” Abu Faour told the voice of Lebanon radio station.
“However, in light of recent complications, we fear for the presidential election.”
Abu Faour was referring to the standoff over the government’s policy statement.
The presidential election is scheduled to take place in May 2014.
