NNA - Leader of the Lebanese Forces, Samir Geagea, said in a statement from Maarab, "we are facing a new era and this is a significant step."
"I did not expect the country to be able to emerge from the state of disruption, but we managed to do so despite everything," he said.


In response to a question, Geagea said "General Michel Aoun was one of the disrupters, but there were other reasons for that; reasons beyond his control, and proof is the fact that disruption has ended in collaboration with Aoun himself."


Asked how to persuade the opponents to Aoun's election, Geagea said "the political situation was complex and subtle and I do understand their stance, but they have to judge what will be done in the new mandate."


"Let us consider how the Nejmeh Square is full of life. Shortly, life will return to the Baabda Palace and to Lebanon, and this is a big achievement," he concluded.
