Aoun’s candidacy still uncertain

BEIRUT: Members of the Change and Reform parliamentary bloc are still discussing MP Michel Aoun's possible candidacy for president, a lawmaker in the bloc said Friday.

“The head of the bloc General Michel Aoun did not announce his candidacy to the presidency yet,” MP Walid Khoury told the voice of Lebanon radio station.“The bloc is still discussing his candidature.”

In his first public comments on the subject, Aoun said earlier this week that there is a “serious possibility” he will run for president.

President Michel Sleiman’s six-year term ends on May 25, and the two-month constitutional deadline to elect a new president starts March 15.
