Araiji: Frangieh more than capable of assuming presidential office

FEBRUARY 28, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY LEBANON) Culture Minister Raymond Araiji told Voice of Lebanon radio on Saturday that although Marada leader, Sleiman Frangieh, supports MP Michel Aoun for president, he is fully capable of assuming office himself in case things went against Aoun.

Araiji stated that electing a temporary president simply to solve the electoral problem was not a viable solution, opting for electing a president that would serve his full term.

He advised Christians not to get used to the absence of a president, as this would reflect badly on them.
