The National Patriotic Party (NPP) has sent out a warning to the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) and the Liberia People Democratic Party (LPDP) to abort any plan of fielding candidates in counties where the NPP has incumbents in the Senate for the upcoming senatorial election. The decision to send out the caveat was reached Sunday evening after hours of closed-door meeting at the party’s headquarters in Congo.
The meeting was attended by Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor, Maryland County Senator Dan Morais, Chairman Emeritus Chairman Cyril Allen, Bomi County Senator Sando Johnson, former chairman Lawrence George, Secretary of the Senate Nborlor Singbeh, former Speaker Nyudueh Morkonmana, former Vice President John Gray, ex-general Roland Duo, among others.
Chairman emeritus, Chief Allen said, the NPP has resolved to ensure that the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) sticks to the agreement that brought the tripartite arrangement that formed the Coalition.
He mentioned: “Our agreement between the three collaborating parties under the Coalition was very clear and the Election Commission used our documents as basis to register as a Coalition; we must not renege on it. It is very bad for institution to make commitment and sign documents and submit them to international respectable bodies and renege on those agreements that shows lack of seriousness.
Currently, the NPP has three sitting senators to include Bomi County Senator Sando Johnson, Maryland County Senator Dan Morais, and Senator Armah Jallah of Gbarpolu County respectively.
