Opposition Alternative National Congress (ANC) Vice Standard Bearer Mr. Jeremiah C. Sulunteh has reaffirmed his defiance to the much talked about “Code of Conduct”, saying he has no concern about it because the past two presidential elections here were either based on residency clause or Truth and Reconciliation Commission report.
Mr. Sulunteh made the statement recently on the Booker T. Washington Institute (BWI) Campus in Kakata, Margibi County during the institution’s 88th Gala Anniversary.He told reporters after the program that he is not concerned about the Code of Conduct, arguing that in the 2005 elections, there was the ten years residency clause, while in the 2011 elections the TRC report became the issue against those seeking the presidency.
He said he is accustomed to such politics, adding that he leaves the Code of Conduct with the lawyers to interpret, while insisting that he will be on the ballot and will be the next Vice President of the Republic of Liberia.
Mr. Sulunteh was recently picked in Kakata as running mate to former corporate executive, now ANC standard bearer Mr. Alexander B. Cummings.
