Prime Minister Saad Hariri pledged Sunday to defend the country's Arabism, moderation and the Taif Accord, part of the Future Movement's campaigning for the upcoming parliamentary elections, whose battle is gaining momentum with more factions announcing their candidates for Lebanon's first polls in nine years.Hariri said his job as prime minister and head of the Future Movement was to snuff out "political fires" and prevent wars raging in the region from spilling over to Lebanon.It is one of three international conferences aimed at supporting Lebanon.Local media said Information Minister Melhem Riachi, one of three LF ministers, would visit Hariri in a last-ditch attempt to agree on an electoral alliance between the two former allies.Hasbani also appeared to ridicule the Future Movement's "evil eye charm" slogan launched when Hariri announced on March 11 the names of 37 Future candidates for the elections.Former Prime Minister Najib Mikati announced candidates for all 11 seats in northern Lebanon's Tripoli, Minyeh and Dinnieh electoral district that will run as a full list for his Azm Party.
