Russians Political Alignment In Liberia Amid October 10 Polls Increases Jabs Throwing

The reported presence in Liberia of a Russian official has created a serious debate between the former ruling political party, the Unity Party (UP) of former Vice President and the current ruling establishment, the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) of President George Manneh Weah amid the October 10 polls has given rise to the throwing of jabs between the two political rivals.

During his recent news conference this week, the Secretary General of the ruling CDC, Jefferson Koijee made a startling revelation to the press on how the opposition Unity Party hired a Russian to do business with the party ahead of the country’s general and presidential elections on October 10, 2023.

This allegation by the CDC Chief Scribe did not down well with the UP-Campaign Spokesman, Mo Ali who fired back at Koijee, noting that the Russian who is said to be in the country was invited by one Melee Kermue, a Liberian currently residing in Russia.

Ali alleged that Melee Kermue who is a very close friend of Vice President Jewel Howard-Tayor made all the arrangements for the arrival to Liberia of this reported Russian who he alleged is on a mission for the CDC during the country’s elections.

With this latest jab throwing between officials of the CDC and UP amid the upcoming elections, political observers and the ordinary Liberians who are prospective voters for the upcoming elections say they are concern for this election to be peaceful, despite calls by the international community for political actors in these elections to respect the Farmington River Declaration.
