In a press release issued over the weekend quoting County Chairpersons, coordinators and auxiliaries of the National Patriotic Party (NPP) have threatened to boycott all activities leading to the February 4th nomination program of the Standard Bearer of the Coalition for Democratic Change if the party is not given the due recognition it deserves to play its rightful role in the nomination process.
The decision, according to the press release was reached at a well-attended meeting in Monrovia, the partisans warned further that if the congress for democratic change continues to marginalize the NPP in the coalition they will pressure their leadership to pull out of the coalition and redirect the party in a new political marriage.
The partisans expressed regret and frustration over the manner and form the NPP has been treated by the congress for democratic change over the past five years wherein only congress members are being considered in the allocation of party funds and logistics to function as coalitions well as preference for appointment in government thereby reducing the NPP as being a mere spectator in spite of the huge support the party put up to secure a victory during the 2017 presidential and legislative election.
Meanwhile the partisans of NPP hereby warn their national chairman, Senator James P. Biney, Standard Bearer Jewel Howard Taylor to disengage from all further activities leading to the nomination process and at the same time called on partisans across the length and breadth of Liberia to stay away from all activities leading to the nomination day on February 4, 2023 until the party can be given the due recognition and respect to allow it play its rightful role in the coalition.
