LIBERIA: Coalition Parties Abandon CDC Due To ‘Bad Governance’ Ahead Of October Election

CDC National Chairman, Mulbah Morlu

The constituent parties of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), a tripartite arrangement that won the 2017 presidential election and brought President Weah to power including the National Patriotic Party (NPP), of Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor, and former House Speaker Alex Tyler’s Liberian People’s Democratic Party (LPDP) have both resolved not to attest their signatures to the second bid of President Weah.

Both parties in their sperate interviews last weekend, the executives of both the NPP and LPDP said they have resolved not to attest their respective parties signatures to any document to renew the collaboration, noting that they are disappointed in the governance of the country by the CDC.

In their separate executive meetings, the NPP and LPDP over the weekend pledged not to support or endorse President Weah in his bid for the second term, further noting that the CDC needs to put its act together, but publicly rejected any collaboration with the CDC.

With this latest development within the governing party, many are wondering as to what is happening ahead of the October 10, 2023 poll, where the CDC is hopeful of the reelection of President Weah. It seems that with this development, the chances of the CDC come October poll will be a problem.

  3. My vote is for Alexander Cummings. In an effort to conduct a comprehensive and respected polling, you must announce your intention ahead of time in the media. Approximately one week before conducting your survey is
    appropriate. Furthermore, your polling section for the presidency of Liberia should NOT be at the bottom of your page in a passive form. Lastly, you must make very easy for people to vote. I wrote my choice in the comment section because I could not find where to cast my vote.
