Abu Nader: Centralized Lebanese State Is 'Failed' and 'Ailing'

Kataeb leader's top adviser Fouad Abu Nader on Thursday said that the centralized system adopted in Lebanon has proved to be a fiasco, deeming the centralized Lebanese state as "failed and ailing".

"Lebanon is made up of several sects. However, we are avoiding the fact that the country is based on sectarian conflicts," Abu Nader said in an interview on OTV.

"The day we resolve this issue, it would become easy to put the corrupt to account. Today, the Lebanese are still living in a constant state of fear and anxiety. The fear of the others is preventing the complete merging between the Lebanese," he added.

Abu Nader noted that the Kataeb party had fought the parliamentary elections with a one-of-a-kind approach that was based on dealing directly with the people's concerns, adding that the party fought a great battle alone.

Abu Nader said that it was MP Samy Gemayel who motivated him to join the Kataeb's ranks again, adding that he chose to return so as to work through a large institution on building a better future for Lebanon.
