CDC Suffers Another Resignation, Bomi Chapter Youth Chair Resigns

Mr. Alexander B. Cummings, Standard Bearer of the ANC

The coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) of Senators George Weah and Jewel Howard Taylor has again been hit by another resignation from the Party’s Bomi County Chapter Youth Whig Chair, Aaron D. Mayson.

In his letter of resignation to Mr. Victor Johnson, Secretary General of the Liberia People Democratic Party (LPDP) which is also a party to the CDC, and dated on May 16, 2017, Mr. Mayson said, “I write to officially resign from my position as Youth Chair and member the LPDP and thus the Coalition for Democratic Change.

My resignation comes as the result of my recent observation of the coalition’s inability to create the democratic space for the kind of democratic tenant for which the parties were coalesced.

This action on the part of some individuals in the echelon of the coalition has not only narrowed the coalition chances, but has also reflected the coalition’s inability to create an environment for massive political participation leading to the October presidential and representative elections.

As an emerging politician, I am pleased to acknowledge that my political engagement with other institutions would be known at the ripest movement,” Mr. Johnson in his letter of resignation noted.

Meanwhile, according to an informed source, the former youth chair of the CDC, Aaron D. Mayson has begun negotiating with the executive committee of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) of Alexander Cummings for his membership.
