A presidential poll will be held in coming days, a Free Patriotic Movement MP said Tuesday, as the decision to hold it drew both support and opposition.The poll was first proposed by FPM leader Michel Aoun in May as one of four options to end Lebanon's presidential deadlock.LF leader Samir Geagea reiterated Tuesday his support for the poll, saying it wasn't directed against any Lebanese faction, was nonbinding and didn't violate the Constitution.Marada Movement leader Sleiman Frangieh, an ally of Aoun, said that while he supported the poll, its outcome would not affect his voting choices.Lebanon has been without a president since May of last year, with each of the March 8 and March 14 coalitions having vetoed their respective candidates Aoun and Geagea.Habr said it was "bad" of Geagea to back the poll.
