Lebanese Forces won't approve PM backed by Hezbollah

Lebanese forces leader Samir Geagea has said that his party will refuse any Prime minister and any President who are allied with Hizbullah.

He added, in a press interview, that the divisions in Parliament will lead to a big confrontation between Hizbullah and its allies and the LF.

Geagea said that a cooperation with the Oct. 17 MPs is needed. "We all need each other in order to make a change," he affirmed.

LF sources have meanwhile told Kuwaiti newspaper al-Anbaa that people have voted for real change not for "theatrical movements" in the streets, slamming the reformist MPs for not focusing on "the essence of change but rather on the forms."

Observers have warned of protracted deadlocks during consultations to name a new prime minister and in the run-up to an election later this year to replace President Michel Aoun.
