"I do not expect a president to be elected soon, Hezbollah is taking Lebanon into the unknown," says Geagea

NNA - Lebanese Forces Party Chief, Samir Geagea, said in an interview with Asharq Al-Awsat that “Hezbollah, and its successor, Iran, are taking Lebanon to serious places,” pointing out that “the Lebanese authority, which is like a mother and father, has abandoned Lebanon and left it a prey to Iran's dangerous policies in the region."

He accused the resistance axis of "disrupting the presidential elections that have been void for nearly two years, because their priorities are elsewhere," speaking of "serious contacts that the Lebanese Forces are conducting with about 25 deputies who can constitute a force that can tip the balance within parliament, to persuade them to take a clear position on the elections." However, he expressed slow positivity of about 30 percent in this regard.

Geagea believed that the southern Lebanese war is not linked to the Gaza war alone, saying: "We are now, due to Hezbollah’s connections, linked from the Red Sea to the Bab al-Mandab Strait, to the Strait of Hormuz, Iraq, and Syria, all the way to Lebanon...This interconnectedness renders the country in a dangerous position..."

He added that "if the situation remains as is, then we are facing a mean war of attrition that will cost Lebanon human lives on the one hand, and economic losses on the other hand," cautioning that "if there is a greater escalation, God knows where we will be, what will happen, and what the losses will be..." He regretted that Lebanon would lose in both cases.
