The expected candidates of March 14 were, in addition to Geagea, Amine Gemayel, Boutros Harb, Robert Ghanem and Jihad Azour. Fatfat described Geagea's candidacy as a "favour for Lebanese democracy."
Future Bloc planned a meeting soon to discuss presidential elections. The MP stated that if by then the sole candidate was Geagea, then he would definitely vote for him.
Blaming the current economic and security situation on the "coup of the black shirts" in a reference to Hezbollah, Fatfat criticized Hassan Nasrallah for wanting a president "made in Lebanon" while his own decision was made elsewhere, namely Tehran.
"We don't know who Nasrallah's candidate is...but I read that his favourite candidate is the army commander [followed by] Michel Aoun."
Fatfat concluded that there was an international agreement to spare Lebanon the raging fire in Syria and preserve the minimum degree of stability domestically.
