Speaking during the official launch of the platform, the presidential candidate of the Party, Mr. MacDonald A. Wento flanked by his running mate, John N. Bleah, said the UPP platform has 19 Planks, each articulating the Party’s plan as to how it will address all the major concerns of the Liberian people.
He further noted that his Party Platform is an outline of the policy framework that will guide agencies of the Government of Liberia in the UPP led Administration.
The political leader of the UPP also indicated that Peace-building, National Healing and Reconciliation will be will be his party’s number-one program; and that maintenance of existing, and construction of new, roads will be its second priority.
In Foreign Policy, Mr. Wento further told his partisans who had gathered on the grounds of the party and Liberians that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be re-organized, strategically positioned, and staffed with experienced diplomatic agents who are knowledgeable about how to tap into external opportunities to achieve the UPP domestic agenda.
The UPP 2017 Platform includes a plan that calls for using technology as a means to discourage corruption and undermine moral weakness, particularly in Government. UPP intends to make prosecution of corrupt public servants a predicable response in the country.
