‘No soldier will be left behind’

-Morlu assures CDCians

By Lewis S. Teh

Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) chairman Mulbah K. Morlu has assured partisans, executives and auxiliary groups that none of them will be left behind if President George Manneh Weah is re-elected.

Mr. Morlu was particularly addressing those who were left out during the first term of President Weah. He encouraged them to register and vote in the October 10 presidential and legislative elections.

“We want to assure you that as we all have registered to give President Weah a one-round victory, you can be [assured] that no soldier will be left behind,” said Mr. Morlu Thursday, 6 April 2023.

“The sacrifices that some of you have made for this party about 18 years ago will end following the pronouncement of Weah [as] winner,” he said further during a press conference at the party headquarters.

The CDC Chairman’s statement comes amid criticism by some partisans who said they were left out during the first term of the government. Some have expressed regrets supporting the ruling party.

Morlu acknowledged the challenges that some partisans are encountering daily, vowing that it will never happen again.

“The CDC is quite aware of the ongoing challenges that are confronting members of our party, but we want to assure you that these challenges may not occur when President Weah gets re-elected,” he said.

According to him, during the 2017 election, the CDC campaigned on the mantra of change. Morlu noted that when the party assumed the presidency, in the first phase it introduced a change. He said the party seeks to construct that change into reality in the second phase.

Morlu argued that if President Weah must turn into reality the change he introduced during his first six years, then the issue of voter registration can’t be overly emphasized.

“We’re determined that President Weah will win in the first round, reason being … he has demonstrated the change in the lives of citizens,” Morlu said.

He continued that this change is visible – citing roads, tuition-free policies, loans, and children’s play ground, among others.

“You can’t sustain development if you’re not a registered voter; many things will happen if any CDCian fails to get registered.”

He warned that party officials, executives and heads of auxiliary groups who may not display voter registration cards will be subjected to many actions. 

Morlu stated that if CDCians can’t get registered, then they can’t give President Weah a first-round victory.

At the same time, Morlu has thrown jabs at the opposition, accusing them of not carrying out awareness up to now, but they are running to the Supreme Court to halt the process.

“The good thing about this election, we don’t have any opposition. The weak group of people calling themselves opposition are fragmented, visionless, and leaderless. And we must take advantage of this situation,” he said.

Meanwhile, Chairman Morlu has called on the National Elections Commission (NEC) and its workers to stop denying people who can’t speak English fluently.

“We believe that nobody should be turned down from registering because of ascent,” he said.
