Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri's initiative to break the 19-month-long presidential deadlock is not linked to his return to the premiership, Future Movement MP Ammar Houri said Monday.Speaking in Parliament, Houri dismissed media reports that Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea intended to set Hariri's return to the premiership as a condition for the LF's possible support for MP Michel Aoun's candidacy for the presidency. Houri was clearly referring to Hariri's initiative backing MP Sleiman Frangieh's presidential bid that has been stymied by vehement opposition from the country's three main Christian parties: the Free Patriotic Movement, the LF and the Kataeb Party.
