Resigned Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi said that former Prime Minister Saad Hariri would be making a mistake if he endorsed MP Michel Aoun for the presidency.Rifi added that even Hariri's presidential candidate, Marada Movement leader Sleiman Frangieh, is a copy of Syrian President Bashar Assad.Although Hariri previously endorsed Frangieh earlier this year, recent meetings with top Lebanese leaders suggest that he may be open to other options, such as backing Aoun in his presidential bid.
