In a statement carried by the the state-run National News Agency, he denied that "he agreed with MP Bahia Hariri to run for a second tenure and then withdraw after six months or a year."
"These are baseless, false and fictitious," the statement added.
Saudi's remarks come after Sidon businessman Mohammad Zaidan told As-Safir newspaper that he would bewilling to run for the council to block the alleged deal between the mayor and Hariri.
Zaidan didn't explain the nature of the agreement or its reasons.

Popular Nasserite Organization Secretary-General Osama Saad who announced his group’s full list for Sidon’s municipal elections Monday is challenging Saudi's list, who is backed by the Future Movement and one by local political Islamists.
The Future Movement enjoys wide support in Sidon, which is the hometown of assassinated former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and his son Saad.
