After the failure of the French initiative, more than one internal initiative took place, including the tours of Deputy Speaker of Parliament Elias Bou Saab and Representative Ghassan Skaff, and other diplomatic by Saudi ambassador Waleed al Bukhari , and the american side who has been  active  since the statement  issued by US State department that  highlighted  the necessity to elect a president free from corruption, considering that this merit is exercised from within and not from without, in addition to the movement of Ambassador Dorothy Shea and her meetings with a number of officials, because it seems that the dossier presidential has begun to be addressed at more than one level to reach an agreement that leads to the election of a president and the end of the vacuum that has lasted for about six months. Informed sources, through "Akhbar Al-Yawm" agency, found that

 The Commander of the army, General Joseph Aoun, whose name appears on a security background, in particular after his success in "regulating the rhythm of the earth" since 2019 and the popular movements and security struggles that accompanied him, and his performance has shown that he is at the same distance from everyone, on top of that he is acceptable to everyone. The United States continues to support the army in various areas, and if his name is seriously mentioned, the Lebanese Forces will support him, noting that Geagea had announced in a previous interview that he supports the army commander "s 'it turns out that his candidacy is advanced'.

- Former minister Jihad Azour, whose name comes due to his position as director of the Middle East and Central Asia department at the International Monetary Fund, especially since the agreement with this fund is the key to restoring confidence in Lebanon, and his financial and economic experience, in addition to his good relations with Arab and Western countries, noting here that Azour, on the basis of  his current position, contributes to finding solutions for countries that fall into crises like  Lebanon.

- Ibrahim Kanaan who, due to his chairmanship of the Finance and Budget parliamentary Committee for years, has mastered financial matters - from the political and technical angles - and his performance has earned the mention of local and foreign authorities, and of on the other hand he played a remarkable role in Christian-Christian reconciliation, on which he worked in 2016 and which was accomplished, in addition to his name appearing on the Bkerki list presented by Patriarch Mar Beshara Boutros Al -Rahi.

The same sources consider that the serious prominence of these names makes the search for a common denominator among Christians an available matter, noting that the unfolding of any of these three scenarios depends on the failure or success of the Christian forces to be united around the name of a reformist president.
