The political leader of the opposition of All Liberia Party (ALP), one of the parties in the Collaborative Political Parties (CPP), Benoni Wilfred Urey has publicly declared that he supports the presidential bid of the political leader of the Unity Party (UP), former Liberian Vice President, Joseph N. Boakai in the upcoming 2023 general and presidential elections.
Addressing a news conference on Thursday, June 17, 2021, Mr. Urey bragged that his preferred choice, the Unity Party political leader is the only qualified and matured politician who can rule Liberia after the reign of the CDC-led government of President George Manneh Weah.
Urey’s support to the presidential bid of Mr. Boakai in the 2023 presidential elections has clearly shown that there is a division in the CPP where Mr. Alexander Cummings of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) has vowed to capture the presidential bid in the 2023 elections.
Mr. Urey believes strongly that the only candidate in the CPP that can defeat incumbent President George Manneh Weah face down at the poll in 2023 is the 76 years old ex-Vice President.
But ANC leader Mr. Alexander B. Cummings recently said after running large complex organizations in the United States and producing results, he brings different experiences than former Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai.
“I think the difference, I will say is, I bring a different set of experiences than the former Vice President, and Liberians will have to decide whether that different set of experiences is what they think we need to lead our country,”
