The secretary general of the newly constituted legislative caucus of the opposition Collaborating Political Parties Representative Henson Kaizolu has descended on Montserrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon, saying, Dillon’s actions, deeds and speeches are directed at his political cloud.
Speaking to reporters at the Capitol in Monrovia, Rep. Kaizolu said hence, lawmakers from the CPP will speak with one voice unlike the style and manner of Senator Dillon. Since his ascendency to the senate, the opposition Liberty Party vice chair for political affairs (Dillon) has projected himself as light to the Liberian Senate, presenting himself as a transformer.
The CPP legislative caucus elected new corps of officials last Thursday to steer the affairs of that body for the next eight months. Representative Papa Kolleh of the opposition All Liberian Party was named chairman of the caucus.
Various positions were divided amongst opposition lawmakers representing all four parties that constitute the CPP with the former ruling Unity Party (UP) taking the secretary general post, while the Liberty Party (LP) was elected Co-chair and the Alternative National Congress (ANC) assistant secretary general, respectively.
Caucus chair Representative Kolleh of Bong County Electoral District #7 said, the gathering was intended to solidify the CPP caucus in making a difference in terms of how they work on national issues.
“We will work to strengthen the leadership of the CPP and engage the government positively on issues affecting the country,” he added. He said with such collaboration, issues at the legislature can no longer be “business as usual.” “CPP will make sure we hold the floor and will scrutinize any document that will be put on the floor.” Editing by Jonathan Browne
