Concerning Lebanon's presidential election, the diplomatic source believes that this will be the first time in decades that the country has had a chance to "Lebanon-ize" the process after becoming accustomed to the idea that a president should be chosen by foreign powers.He said the difficulty in "Lebanon-izing" the presidential election was similar to the difficulty the country had in holding the election in the first place. Now political parties find themselves confused about their inability to elect a president without foreign interferences after years of having little say at all.Lebanon's inability to elect a president on time, according to the diplomat, does not mean that the international community has abandoned it, as it will always keep an interest in maintaining the country's stability.
