Change and Reform bloc MP Ibrahim Kanaan Saturday said that there are indications that Lebanon's presidential vacuum could be near its end.The presidential race is currently pitting Aoun against Marada Movement leader Sleiman Frangieh. While Aoun is supported by Hezbollah, some of its March 8 allies and the Lebanese Forces, Frangieh is backed by Berri, former Prime Minister Saad Hariri, MP Walid Jumblatt and some independent lawmakers. Turning to the country's offshore oil and gas resources, Kanaan said that the agreement between Speaker Nabih Berri and head of the Free Patriotic Movement Gebran Bassil bridged the gap with Aoun, denying that the agreement included a deal on the presidency.
