| The election of a president of the republic is [dependent] on a regional and international decision that is not available yet, and there is no chance today to choose a new state head, Minister of Interior, Nohad Mashnouq, told reporters at Maarab on Tuesday.
"We are in a time of political storms that requires consideration. We do not need further confrontation," the Minister said.
"The internal dialogues will not lead to the election of a president, unless there is a regional and international decision. The problem lies within this decision and not within dialogue," he corroborated.
Mashnouq visited today Lebanese Forces leader, Samir Geagea, with whom he discussed the LF nomination of MP Michel Aoun as a candidate to the presidency.
