Liberia’s former Ambassador to the United States of America, now vice chairman for the Governing Council of opposition Coalition for Democratic Change or CDC, Mr. Nathaniel Barnes says the Coalition has an edge as the most relevant opposition to win October elections.
He said he couldn’t support the continuity of the ruling Unity Party on grounds of government’s alleged inability and failure to really address the issue of disparity in the society, and the lack of progress in fighting corruption.
Amb. Barnes says he wants to see some tough actions against people that cheat and steal public resources, and he wants the public sector move away from nepotism.
The CDC official says the Unity Party led- government in which he has worked, has failed to reconcile Liberians. But he however praised the effort of President Sirleaf for keeping the peace here and for the waival of debt in favor of Liberia. He also commended the coming on of the Mount Coffee Hydropower Plant.
