The microphones of a variety of Lebanese radio and TV stations await the arrival of general Michel Aoun at his residence in Rabieh near Beirut. Aoun, a Christian leader who sides with Hezbollah against the government, is one of the many candidates in Lebanon's troubled presidential elections. The elections have been postponed twice already. On November 12, Lebanon's MP's will make another attempt at agreeing on a consensus candidate to replace president Emile Laoud, whose mandate runs out on November 24.
