As political campaigns intensify across Liberia, the Standard Bearer of the Movement of Economic Empowerment or MOVEE Dr. Mills Jones, is expected to lead over 5,000 partisans and supporters of his party candidate for Montserrado County Electoral District#5 Benjamin Yele Wehye, to officially launch the party headquarters in the district on 12 August.
Making the disclosure Wednesday, the Information Officer for Mr. Wehye, K. Nelson Gonwoe, says prior to the launch, Dr. Jones would lead an array of senior partisans in a parade, which starts from the Ma Kebbeh Gas Station to the campaign headquarters of Mr. Wehye situated behind Paynesville Town Hall for the formal program.
Dr. Jones is former executive governor of the Central Bank of Liberia and is vying for the Presidency for the first time like many other candidates in the race. Mr. Gonwoe continues that thereafter, the standard bearer would address partisans and supporters of Mr. Wehye, who is the party’s candidate for electoral district#5.
Wehye is vying against incumbent Representative Thomas Fallah, who is seeking a third bid on the ticket of the opposition Congress for Democratic Coalition (CDC) of Montserrado County Senator George M. Weah.
According to Gonwoe, the presence of Dr. Jones in the district would stimulate and encourage partisans and supporters to go all out in communities to campaign for victory for the party on 10 October.
He calls partisans and supporters in the district to come out in their numbers in preparation for the big political showdown which MOVEE must get at all cost. Meanwhile, Candidate Benjamin Yele Wehye, is commending authorities of the Liberia National Police (LNP) and the Paynesville City Corporation (PCC) for ongoing clearing of street peddlers to provide an enabling environment for the free conduct of campaign activities by political parties and their candidates.
