Ahead of next Tuesday’s polls, the Coalition for Democratic Change or CDC announces a pre-victory march set for Friday, October 7, at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia where hundreds of thousands of supporters, sympathizers and friends of the Coalition are expected to converge.
Addressing a news conference here on Monday, 2 October at the CDC headquarters in Monrovia, Vice Chairman for Operations, Mulbah Morlu says the pre-celebration will be carried out throughout the capital to be marked by an all night tarry.
The National Elections Commission has set October 8, as end of political campaign here for the ensuing elections. Morlu, who is vying for seat in Montserrado County Electoral District #10, says the all-day event will commence with a march throughout the capitol, with two separate venues being set for the Standard bearer, Senator George Weah to address his supporters.
He names the headquarters of the CDC in Congo Town as one venue where the senior partisan will address partisans, supporters, sympathizers and friends from Gardnerville and Congo Town, while the rest of the county will be diverted to the Antoinette Tubman Stadium where Weah will climax the day with another powerful speech.
According to him, the close of campaign event will be conducted in all 15 political sub-divisions of Liberia with powerful speeches and reenergizing mandate of the Liberian people.
He notes that of recent, some political parties tried to play ‘political crowd friskiness’, adding that some used the major streets of the country to hold political rallies, while others used more cars than human beings to fill the streets of Monrovia.
He claims that from the visitation of the CDC campaign team throughout the country, Liberians are yielding for one round victory and nothing will stop that, on grounds that effort of the CDC will be appreciated by Liberians who will turn out to vote overwhelmingly against the governing Unity Party.
