| MP Jamal Jarrah told Voice of Lebanon radio on Sunday that Iran's orders are to halt presidential elections and keep the country without a head of state.
This, according to Jarrah, was obvious in a recent speech by Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, when he asked not to "make haste in electing a president." This request came after a year and eight months without president.
"[Nasrallah] clings to Aoun, but he cannot impose upon Speaker Nabih Berri to elect Aoun, nor impose on MP Sleiman Frangieh to withdraw his candidacy."
On a different note, Jarrah denied that the people of Arsal were fleeing the town due to clashes between ISIS and Nusra Front. He contended that the Lebanese army was fully in control of the situation.
