Independence Movement leader, Michel Moawad, son of assassinated President Rene Moawad, announced Saturday that he will run on the Free Patriotic Movement list in the northern Zgharta quadaa, in the upcoming parliamentary elections.

In a live news conference, Moawad announced his joining the FPM list and said that the decision of the Lebanese Forces candidate to run for the election in Zgharta will only lead to disperse the preferential vote.

Moawad stressed that “despite everything, he considers the Lebanese Forces as a historical ally and the battle is not against the party.”

“Our project is one of reform, transparency and fighting corruption by words and deeds,” Moawad concluded.
