The election of a president in Lebanon does not require a formal nomination process.There is little need for a public relations effort to introduce candidates to the public.However, they remain silent and hope that the prevailing political winds – not at home, but in the region and elsewhere – will usher them into Baabda Palace.In fact, the deliberate ambiguity surrounding this type of prospective candidate is an insult to the nation's highest post, and Lebanese politicians should set aside their shyness when it comes to presidential aspirations.
