Farmington Declaration Threatens, Amid CDC Provocative Streets Casket Parade

Liberia witnessed another sad day during the first day of official opening of the 2023 October 10 presidential and general elections campaign when partisans of the ruling CDC took to the streets with casket on their heads symbolizing the death of the presidential candidate of the former ruling Unity Party, UP.

The parade with a casket bearing images of Unity Party’s Standard Bearer Amb. Joseph N. Boakai by a group of youths from the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) at the start of campaigns for the 2023 Presidential and Legislative elections on Saturday, August 5 was provocative-plain and simple,

This undesirable situation of the CDC which drew the attention of many Liberians including the country’s international partners questioned the upholding of the recently signed Farmington River Declaration by all political and independent candidates aimed denouncing any act that would disrupt the election.

Even though the executive of the ruling CDC in a press release condemned the action on the part of some partisans of the CDC, but some political analysis who spoke o the GNN via mobile phone described the unwanted action by the ruling party to take casket in the streets as belittle, noting that such action should have been aborted at the party’s headquarters earlier where the parade started before parading the streets of Monrovia.
