L/R: Alexander Cummings and Jeremiah Sulunteh

The Alternative National Congress (ANC) is pleased to announce the clearing of its Vice Standard Bearer, Ambassador Jeremiah C. Sulunteh, by the Supreme Court of Liberia after being rejected by the National Elections Commission (NEC) on allegation of violation of the National Code of Conduct for public officials.

The ANC congratulated the Honorable Supreme Court for their decision to clear its Vice Standard Bearer to contest alongsideMr. Alexander B. Cummings in the October 2017 elections.

Following the submission of his documents for nomination to the National Elections Commission on Thursday, July 7, 2017, Ambassador Jeremiah C. Sulunteh to much dismay, was denied by NEC, indicating that his Excellency Ambassador Jeremiah C. Sulunteh was rejected on grounds that Ambassador Sulunteh was in violation of the National Code of Conduct.

Following this initial decision, the ANC’s detractors and the opposition fought hard to discourage and misled partisans and supporters to believe that there would be no ANC ticket, as they have sought to accomplish since Sulunteh’s announcement as Cumming’s running mate.

The Chairman of the ANC party and its Standard Bearer both held press conferences reassuring their supporters that they would find Cummings and Sulunteh side by side on the October ballot.

Further, the law abiding and responsible political institution, the Alternative National Congress (ANC),in fashion decided to proceed to the Supreme court to get due process. Ambassador Sulunteh consequently was cleared and found to not be in violation of the code of conduct.

In response to the announcement, the Standard Bearer of the ANC Alexander B. Cummings said,

“The ANC is ready to win elections and is more prepared than any other political party in the country to improve the lives of the Liberian people. Once again, we want to thank the Supreme Court for their judgement in which we believed and will always believe, and to also thank the National Elections Commission (NEC) for the peaceful conduct of the elections so far. Finally, we are calling on our partisans, supporters and well-wishers to remain resolute and get ready for the bigger battle on October 10, 2017.”
