CDC U-turns on by-elections campaign

The ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) reschedules its campaign launch for the upcoming senatorial and district #15 representative by-elections from June 8 to June 22, 2019.

National Chairman Mulbah K. Morlu, says the leadership of the Coalition, being eager to minimize adverse effect of a back-to-back political activity in central Monrovia, reschedules the launch date of its official campaign, leading to a declaration of June 22nd as the new date for official launch of its campaign in Montserrado County.

“This decision to move the campaign launch from this weekend to June 22nd is informed by the presumption that a consecutive political activity on June 8th, may contribute to an undeniably sustained (unintended) disruption of business activities in central Monrovia and its commercial environs,” Morlu asserts.

Chairman Morlu: “This is especially so considering that irrespective of any political objective, the Coalition for Democratic Change will never sub optimizes political expediency above the socio economic interests of the ordinary citizen, to whom democratic and constitutional power belongs.”

The Coalition had earlier called on its partisans to rest from all campaign or political activities this Friday, June 7th to give way to protesters converging to petition the government for reforms.

“It is important to state that throughout this campaign the CDC requires of it partisans the highest demonstration of respect for the rule of law as always, promoting peace and stability and working as usual to enhance the mutual coexistence of all Liberians, irrespective of tribe, gender, ethnicity or religion,” Morlu cautions.
