The Marada Movement head, MP Sleiman Frangieh, Thursday implicitly criticized President Michel Aoun's alleged interference in Lebanon's parliamentary elections, before accusing the Free Patriotic Movement of attacking his party.Frangieh further accused the Free Patriotic Movement, Aoun's political party, of launching "a war" against Marada on social media, and using negative political campaigning tactics, which he said were bound to fail.Frangieh also criticized the FPM's strategies in the lead-up to the elections, noting that the Maronite-majority party had found common ground with Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya and the Future Movement – both Sunni Muslim parties – but had not formed alliances with other Christian entities. Speaking of his own party, Frangieh said Marada's electoral alliances were based on principles rather than political interest.
