The National Elections Commission (NEC) has rescinded its decision to suspend all interactions with the True Whig Party (TWP).
NEC Chairman Jerome G. Korkoya said the decision to resume formal business with the TWP is a result of the resolution of a long-standing leadership crisis within the party.
Chairman Korkoya made the disclosure to political party leaders Tuesday at an Inter-Party Consultative Committee meeting held at the headquarters of the Commission in Monrovia.
It can be recalled that in 2013, the Commission suspended all relations with the TWP because of its failure to resolve a long-standing dispute which split the party between two rival factions headed by Reginald Goodridge and Peter Vuku.
At the time, the two factions were informed that unless they held a national convention to resolve the leadership crisis, all interactions with NEC would remain suspended.
The True Whig Party on Monday, July 6, held its national convention during which a new leadership, headed by Mr. Reginald Goodridge as Chairman, was elected.
