FPM says opposition showing positivity as Azour chances reportedly surge


The Free Patriotic Movement said Friday that the opposition is showing "positivity" regarding presidential candidates and that this positivity "will soon apply to the approach and program."

"We have been showing positivity since last July," the FPM said in a statement. "What has changed is the positivity that the opposition forces have started to show."

Meanwhile, Kataeb sources told al-Jadeed that communication is ongoing between the FPM, and the opposition forces, including the Lebanese Forces and the Kataeb party.

Ex-minister Jihad Azour has the highest chances so far, the sources said, adding that "more coordination is needed before announcing the candidate."
