Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri is eager to preserve the deep alliance with the Lebanese Forces, two senior Future Movement officials told the Christian Party's leader Samir Geagea Wednesday.Hariri and Hammoud conveyed to Geagea the Future Movement leader's keenness to maintain the deeply entrenched alliance between the LF and the Future Movement, a statement by the National News Agency said.The visit comes weeks after Hariri reportedly expressed his support for Marada Movement leader Sleiman Frangieh's presidential candidacy during a meeting between the two leaders in Paris, a move staunchly opposed by Geagea.Hariri's support for the nomination of Frangieh, a leading figure in the Hezbollah-led March 8 alliance, has put a strain on the Future Movement's ties with the LF, a key pillar of the March 14 coalition.Asked whether the Future Movement has begun looking for a new candidate to back other than Frangieh, Siniora said that any Lebanese had the right to run for presidency.
