Gemayel: Kataeb chooses presidential candidate based on program.

NNA - Kataeb Party leader MP Sami Gemayel on Thursday maintained that the election of a president was the key to the democratic cycle, and the formation of a new government, as well as to the activation of the Parliament's work. "Kataeb chooses its candidate to the presidency based on his program and vision for Lebanon," he said, stressing that his party believes that Lebanon's "diversified" social configuration entails dissociation from the current conflict. "The next president must be neutral and capable of saying no to any attmept to drag the country into the conflict," he indicated. "The candidates we have today do not enjoy those qualities," he considered. Gemayel went on to say that the key to the presidential polls was in the hand of Hezbollah. "We consider that Hezbollah is imlicating Lebanon into crises that affect its ties with its neighbors, while hundreds of thousands of Lebanese are working in the Gulf," he said. ============R.A.H.
