People across Lebanon had divided opinions Sunday on MP Michel Aoun's anticipated election as president, either expressing their support or saying little would change as a result. Aoun, founder of the Free Patriotic Movement, is expected to be elected as president at a parliamentary session to be held Monday. Roudy, a 35-year-old Beirut resident, said it was "about time" Aoun was elected president. Aoun's prospects for election were strengthened after Hariri, who heads the Future Movement, endorsed the FPM founder on Oct. 20 .Ahmad Tabo agreed, saying that the whole process was a result of agreements between politicians. He said he doesn't Aoun support for the presidency. Several Future Movement supporters in the north said they believed Hariri made the right choice by endorsing Aoun.Tripoli residents said that Aoun's election would benefit the city where years of neglect and economic difficulties have been exacerbated by the presidential crisis.
