Hezbollah is the main obstacle preventing the election of a president in Lebanon, and not an inter-Christian dispute, Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea said Friday.In a speech before hundreds of new Lebanese Forces members receiving their membership cards, Geagea denied the claims that the presidential vacuum is a result of a "Christian-Christian dispute". Geagea also praised the Military Court of Cassation's decision to hold a retrial for former Minister Michel Samaha, who was sentenced to four and a half years after smuggling explosives into Lebanon to carry out bombings and assassinations.Samaha was caught by Internal Security Forces in 2012, after informant Miled Kfoury revealed tapes showing the minister discussing the plots, which were coordinated with Mamlouk, an intelligence aide to Assad.
