Eddé: We warned of the collapse since 2006, but officials’ main concern was the [quota] “cake”
For his part, former party leader Carlos Eddé reminded that the Bloc had warned, since 2006, in its successive statements, that what is happening in Lebanon will lead to a scenario that is very similar to what is happening in Venezuela and North Korea. He pointed out that the officials’ main concern at that time was only to receive the largest share of the [quota] “cake.” He expressed his optimism for the National Bloc party, because he saw in it a group of young men and women who are motivated to defend the interest of their country and their future in Lebanon.

The ceremony included a presentation of the National Bloc’s program under the title "Rebuilding our State, a full-fledged State, all over again." A large number of officials from the caza of Jbeil, and of National Bloc’s members, participated in the ceremony.
After the ceremony, a dialogue took place between Secretary-General Pierre Issa and the party's youths who were participating in the Lehfed camp, which was organized by the National Bloc’s Youth Sector on August 26, until Sunday 29.
