The National Chairman of the winning opposition party, the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Mr. Nathaniel McGill has disclosed that his party which won the December 26, runoff presidential election in the formation of its government will organized what he called a ‘Small, but efficient government’.
Speaking to local journalists in Monrovia over the weekend, Mr. McGill said the CDC-led government will ensure that employment is created in the private sector where more people will be employed, bragging, “ the CDC led Government will go down in history after more than 70 years this time, the CDC Government will have in the private sector the highest employer in this country”.
McGill maintained that the CDC-led government will also encourage farmers by buying their products for school feeding programs throughout the country.
The CDC National Chairman made it unequivocally clear that the government will ensure that “power will be invested in the people by decentralization of governance.”
He noted that the victory of the CDC is the first time in 73 years since the True Wing Party took over from the Republican Party in 1944.
According to him, the CDC has been given a clear mandate to reform the economy by ensuring that Liberians take custody of their wealth.
Commenting on the scramble for jobs, McGill said the rush for jobs by the different stakeholders will not bring split among the political parties that formed the CDC.
The CDC is a tripartite coalition bringing together Weah’s Congress for Democratic Change that first took part in the 2005 post-war elections, the former ruling National Patriotic Party (NPP) of ex-President Charles Taylor whose former wife (Jewel Howard-Taylor) is now Liberia’s first elected female Vice President and the LPDP of former House Speaker Alex Tyler.
