BEIRUT, Nov 20 (Reuters) The Lebanese presidential election will be postponed for two days to Nov 23 to give rival leaders more time to agree on a successor to President Emile Lahoud, a senior political source told Reuters today.

Lahoud's term ends on Nov 23 and failure to agree on a new head of state could result in two rival administrations and bloodshed.
