The British and Saudi embassies in Beirut Friday denied that their countries were behind former Prime Minister Saad Hariri's decision to nominate MP Sleiman Frangieh for the presidency.The presidential impasse sparked a spat between two rival March 8 candidates, MPs Michel Aoun and Frangieh. Hariri adopted the Marada leader's nomination in November last year. Frangieh is his main competitor and is supported by Hariri, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, MP Walid Jumblatt and some independent lawmakers.
