Driven by deep concerns to prevent Lebanon's drift into chaos following last week's deadly twin suicide bombings, former Prime Minister Saad Hariri has reacted positively to Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah's renewed call to reach a comprehensive political agreement, including the election of a president and an electoral law.In an indirect response to Nasrallah's appeal, Hariri said the election of a president is the key to a political settlement.In a televised speech Saturday devoted mainly to talk about the Burj al-Barajneh blasts, Nasrallah pleaded with rival factions to keep the momentum of solidarity going for as long as possible and to reach a comprehensive political agreement on key issues, such as the presidency and an electoral law.In a televised speech last week, Nasrallah called on politicians to reach a comprehensive settlement to end the political deadlock.
