| Future MP Mohammad Hajjar told a radio interview on Thursday that the visit of former Prime Minister Saad Hariri to Russia came as part of the efforts he was exerting to fill the presidential vacuum, voicing trust in Russia's ability to secure stability in Lebanon.
The lawmaker said that the role Russia could assume in Lebanon was due to its substantial influence on its regional allies, namely Iran, whom, according to him, still "clutches" the presidential dossier.
"The problem with Iran is that it seeks to meddle in the domestic affairs of the Arab countries, at the account of other regional states," he added.
Hajjar did not fail to reiterate that the election of a new head of the Lebanese republic was a top priority at the time being, renewing support for Future Movement's presidential candidate, MP Sleiman Frangieh.
Furthermore, he maintained that his party was keeping pace with the municipal polls to carry them out on their due date.
