The Lebanese presidential election will not be held on schedule or even shortly after the expiry of President Michel Sleiman's six-year term on May 25 as the issue is closely linked to the Syrian presidential vote and the shape of the new government in Iraq, according to a Druze leader.The Druze leader said he was surprised by former Prime Minister Saad Hariri's insistence on re-establishing balanced relations with Aoun even though the FPM leader returned from his Paris exile to Lebanon in 2005 after having signed an implicit accord with Syria calling for forging an alliance with Hezbollah and other March 8 parties in exchange for these parties supporting his presidential battle, which he lost in 2008 .
