UPP Launches Platform Today To Its Members

Mr. MacDonald Wento, Political leader of UPP

The United People’s Party (UPP) will present its 2017 Platform to the Liberian people on today, Friday, August 11, 2017. The presentation will be made at the Party’s National Headquarters on 20th Street, Sinkor, Monrovia at 1:00 p.m.

According to a press release, the Party says that its Platform has 19 Planks, each articulating the Party’s plan as to how it will address all the major concerns of the Liberia people.

In a press release issued today, authorities of UPP have disclosed that the Party’s Platform is an outline of the policy framework that will guide agencies of the Government of Liberia in the UPP Administration.

The UPP authorities have also indicated that Peace-building, National Healing and Reconciliation will be UPP’s number-one program; and that maintenance of existing, and construction of new, roads will be its second priority.  In Foreign Policy, UPP officials have hinted 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.

The Standard Bearer of the Party, Mr. MacDonald A. Wento will present the Platform to the public.
