The National Chairman of the opposition Liberty Party (LP) Benjamin Sanvee, vows here that the party will lock down Monrovia and its environs on Saturday, 9 September as partisans, supporters, sympathizers and friends converge to have a day with standard bearer Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine.
The political festival under the theme, ‘Green and White Day’ is intended to allow followers and supporters of the Liberty Party to have clear and smooth interaction with their standard bearer and vice standard bearer Harrison Karnwea.
Speaking to this paper on Tuesday, September 05, 2017 at the LP headquarters near Catholic Junction in Monrovia, Chairman Sanvee says every sector of the city is expected to go green and white.
He explains that the attendees will strictly be Monrovia based, adding that following the Saturday’s event, the party will continue its formal launch throughout the country, commencing with Gbarnga, Bong County to be followed by Ganta, Nimba County and the rest of the country.
The Liberty Party has vowed to win the October 10th polls and is seriously reading the political calculus that would land it to the presidency after October.
Chairman Sanvee says Saturday is day that partisans and supporters will tell the country and the world at large that the Liberty Party is prepared to take charge of the country.
He adds that partisans and supporters are being mobilized throughout the city for the final destination at the LP headquarters where they will have personal interaction with Cllr. Brumskine and Mr. Karnwea, the party’s ticket for the presidency.
He points out that officials of the Liberty Party have spent much time in rebranding and creating a new image for the party, and that Liberians will get to know this Saturday the LP is determined to democratically take the Liberian presidency.
Commenting on other contenders in the race, Sanvee says the LP considers every presidential candidate for the October elections as a major contender, and is not leaving any stone unturned.
Speaking specifically of the standard bearer of the ruling Unity Party, Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai, Sanvee says as far as the Liberty Party is concerned, VP Boakai is running from records of a government that he serves in, a situation which according to him, puts the Liberty Party in a better position to deal with the UP.
Saturday’s rally is expected to produce the biggest turnout yet by the LP since the party officially opened its new headquarters earlier this year in Monrovia, gravitating tens of thousands of supporters, partisans and well-wishers.
