If figures such as Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah or Samir Geagea can't fully guarantee their security and are obliged to live in bunker-like conditions, then Aoun can't offer guarantees about politicians' safety.Aoun thus shot down any possibility of a presidential election taking place, and hinted that the functioning of the Cabinet and the battle over holding parliamentary elections will provide even more reasons for a hot political summer.Otherwise, Aoun's only contribution is the concept of democratic elections being unworthy of being held, unless he is guaranteed to win.
