Alexander B. Cummings, Jr., Presidential Candidate and leader of the Alternative National Congress party, Republic of Liberia

On October 10, 2017, Liberians will vote in presidential and legislative elections. This election is expected to be one of the most important ballot-casting exercises in the country’s history since its founding in 1847. The presidential election remains crucial because it will determine the fate of a country bruised from internal conflicts, poverty, corruption, and underdevelopment.  Fortunately, a sparkle of hope awaits Liberians if they assent to make the right decision with their voting card.

Out of 22 presidential candidates, there are six genuine, sincere, sober and credible aspirants, they are: Vice President Joseph Boakai of the ruling Unity Party (UP); Counselor Charles Brumskine of the Liberty Party (LP); Senator George Weah of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Dr. Joseph Mills Jones of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE); Businessman Benoni Urey of the All Liberian Party (ALP); and global corporate executive Mr. Alexander Cummings of the Alternative National Congress (ANC). The rest of the unnamed presidential candidates appear to be in search of attention and potential jobs in the next administration.
