Speaker Nabih Berri is reportedly seeking to persuade Hezbollah to adopt the presidential bid of MP Sleiman Frangieh rather than miss the chance to elect a March 8 candidate.Tensions soared between political coalitions in the country after nominations for two main presidential candidates, Aoun and Frangieh, emerged.Frangieh and Aoun are both March 8 leaders.
