Lebanon's Geagea sees vote win for anti-Syria camp

(Adds anti-Syrian source)

BEIRUT, June 7 (Reuters) - Lebanese Christian politician Samir Geagea said his anti-Syrian coalition would secure a slim victory in Sunday’s parliamentary election, defeating a rival alliance that included the Syria- and Iran-backed Hezbollah.

"In my opinion, yes, March 14 ... will return as the majority," Geagea said in an interview with LBC television, adding that the margin might only be slim.

A source in the election campaign of Saad al-Hariri, the Sunni Muslim leader of the coalition, predicted a clear victory for the bloc which he said would win at least 68 seats in the 128-seat assembly. (Writing by Tom Perry; Editing by Ralph Boulton)
