He is expected to meet over the next two days with Speaker Nabih Berri and former prime ministers Saad Hariri, Fouad Siniora and Najib Mikati. He will also be meeting with Aoun, Lebanese Forces head Samir Geagea, Marada Movement leader Sleiman Frangieh and Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblatt. Aoun is expected to be elected on Oct. 31 after major political powers agreed to head to Parliament to elect a president.Although the ministers remain optimistic and politicians are all but assured that Aoun will win the election, some political powers are still opposed to his nomination.During a news conference, Kataeb Party chief MP Sami Gemayel seemed to indicate that he would be voting for neither Aoun nor Frangieh."Our vote during presidential elections will be according to our understandings and we will not enter into the forthcoming presidential deal," Gemayel said. He also rejected claims that Aoun represents the strongest Christian candidate, stressing it was only the insistence of Hezbollah that allowed Aoun to ascend to the presidency.
