The Future Movement Sunday re-elected Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri as head of the party and Ahmad Hariri as general secretary, concluding a two-day general assembly that rallied supporters from around the country.More than 2,400 delegates and 400 observers took part in the general conference with around 80 people running for the 32-member political bureau. Twenty were elected by party members and the remaining 12 were directly appointed by Hariri.Hariri was elected president by acclamation, while Ahmad Hariri was elected as general secretary by the political bureau, which now also includes seven women.Some party members challenged senior party officials and asked why some had refused to vote for President Michel Aoun, despite Hariri's orders to do so.Fatfat and Siniora were among at least four Future MPs who refused to vote for Aoun during the parliamentary session that led to his election in October, despite Hariri's attempt to whip votes for Aoun.
