Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea Tuesday hit back at Speaker Nabih Berri after the latter accused him of "manipulating" Lebanese politicians.Berri's remarks come in light of continuous calls by Geagea for the March 8 alliance to head to Parliament and elect a president after the LF leader endorsed Aoun's nomination, thereby pulling from the race.The two officials had traded fire last week after Geagea questioned Hezbollah's stance on Aoun after the Future Movement endorsed Marada Movement chief Sleiman Frangieh's candidacy. Berri also denied in separate remarks accusations that Hezbollah and Future Movement are obstructing municipal elections.
