Lebanese Forces Party Chief, Samir Geagea, met Saturday with State Minister for Planning Michel Pharaon in Ma’arab, following which the latter disclosed that electoral alliances will be determined in the next two weeks.

“Ashrafieh has its options, and any option will be under the rooftop of the national constants to which we adhere.”

Touching on the latest developments in Syria, Pharaon said, “We live today in the atmosphere of regional crises in general and the crisis in Syria in particular, which requires our keen attention in keeping our internal differences under the red line, in light of the regional issues impacting our internal scene.”

He also stressed on pursuing the government’s work before the parliamentary elections and international conferences, highlighting “the importance of resuming dialogue over the defense strategy due to the question mark today on the Syrian events’ repercussion on Lebanon, alongside what is happening in the vicinity of the Blue Line and our maritime borders in the South.”
