The leader of the opposition Liberty Party or LP Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine says while the LP is calling on newly established political parties and the opposition bloc to join it for a better change; it is also calling on members of the ruling Unity Party to come on board.
“….As we call upon the opposition, as we call the newly formed political parties to come on board, we also call on members of the Unity Party who believe in this country, who believe that Liberia can do better, we say come on board, the tank is big enough for everybody”, Cllr Brumskine said.
He made the call on August 20, 2016, at the Philadelphia Church in Kakata, Margibi where the Brumskine Youth Movement had gone to convene a program. According to Brumskine, the dream of Liberty Party is to bring the country together, reconcile the citizens and change for the better. He said, “Regardless of who we are, where we come from and our personal ambitions, we have a common denominator which is Liberia.”
For his part, LP Chairman Benjamin Sanvee said partisans of the ruling UP are Liberians, and the LP is not a divisive party so they need them to the LP. He said if UP partisans came over to the LP, they will help the latter to build on the successes of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and do some of the things she did not do during her tenure, averring that the LP believes Liberians have to unite in bringing about change.
The LP has been closely working with the ruling UP in what it seems here as political bed fellows with President Sirleaf recently donating fleet of brand new twin-cabin pick-ups to the Liberty Party.
Cllr. Brumskine had contested in two elections against Madam Johnson Sirleaf and lost.
