Michel Aoun: A rally for a departing president

Now here's a bit of political mercantilism. Now that president Aoun last presidency days are coming (October 30th). Now there is a rally to support him once he is no longer president. Interestingly, we still did not manage to elect a president - because obviously, if you are in Lebanon, it is a very convoluted process where everyone would have to agree on the person in question... Still, interesting that president Aoun after taking so many twists and turns and having had the back luck of having so many crises during his presidency (financial, pandemic, and hoard of personal issues etc....) would want to still be a very active in the political game considering he is - with all due respect - a man of advanced age. But hey. that's Lebanon for you.
