The presidential vacuum in Lebanon has reached an alarming stage that could threaten Lebanon's political system, Western diplomatic sources based in Beirut warned this week. The sources said Lebanon was faced with only two options to break the deadlock: implement the Lebanese Constitution or opt for a political package deal that would solve all pending issues including the presidency. In light of the boycott by several parliamentary blocs of electoral sessions, it looks like the Lebanese will have to resort to the second option, that of a package deal, the sources said.If he agrees to withdraw his candidacy, Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun, who claims he has the most representation among Lebanon's Christians to assume the country's presidency, would play a key role in crafting the all-inclusive deal, the sources revealed.
