The Future bloc reiterated in a statement Tuesday that Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea was the group's candidate for the presidential election and called on the rival March 8 camp to announce their own contender.The bloc added that "obstructing the presidential election would result in void that can tarnish the image of Lebanon and the image of its stability".They reiterated the need to hold the presidential election by May 24, when President Michel Sleiman's six-year mandate ends. The bloc's statement comes a day after Geagea refuted reports citing him as saying that former Prime Minister Saad Hariri backed Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun as a consensus candidate.
