Azzi: Aoun's history and personality qualify him for presidency

NNA – Minister of Labour, Sejaan Azzi, told Future Television on Monday that there is no swapping deal between presidency and oil exploration files, asserting that all Lebanese want a president who expresses the will of the people, such as MP Michel Aoun.

Azzi defended the clean political history of Aoun, categorically denying that the latter needed to make any deals in order to reach Baabda Palace.

“[Aoun] has a sizable parliamentary bloc, a history of struggle, a political personality and allies who cling to him.”
