Tony Franjieh to run for 2013 elections

BEIRUT: Tony Franjieh, the son of Marada Movement leader MP Suleiman Franjieh, announced Tuesday that he will run for parliamentary elections set for June 2013. Speaking to reporters after visiting Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun at his Rabieh residence, Franjieh said he is running for the polls and that he is coordinating with his father over all issues. Franjieh’s visit to Aoun is the first one to address politics. The 25-year-old Franjieh said he listened to Aoun’s opinion on “rampant corruption in the country,” on electricity, public administration, appointments and the electoral law. Tony would replace his father in a parliamentary seat in Zghorta.
