Officials Friday resumed consultations over the prolonged presidential stalemate that was shaken earlier this week by Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea's shock endorsement of longtime rival Michel Aoun.Ibrahim Kanaan, a close aide to Aoun who has been a key player in the rapprochement between their Free Patriotic Movement and the LF, met with Geagea at his residence in Maarab. He called on rivals to expand the agreement between the LF and FPM over the presidential crisis to include all parties in order to elect a head of state who has the characteristics agreed upon during the country's national dialogue. Prior to Geagea's endorsement of Aoun, the PSP said it was backing Frangieh for presidency in line with a Future Movement initiative.Hezbollah, however, has consistently maintained its support for Aoun throughout the presidential race.
