Congress for Democratic Change embattled chairman George Solo, has described Ambassador George Weah as “unpredictable” politically, on grounds that “he could want to run” for Montserrado senatorial seat, and yet delay to settle the crisis within the CDC.
“Where Mr. Weah is unpredictable is in all fairness, his confidence is high. He believes in his relationship with the Liberian people and the ability to respond to him at any time,” Mr. Solo said in response to question if Weah is determined to contest for the senate.
“You asked me a direct question; you say your knowledge of Mr. Weah – will he run? You understand what I’m saying?
And I’m saying to you politically, I mean in terms of his psychology that I know, he could. He could run, he could be thinking seriously about running and we could be measuring him on different things,” Solo said.
Mr. Solo’s description of Weah as unpredictable comes as many Liberians remain skeptical whether or not the CDC leader could run for the Senate this time, having lost the presidency in 2005 and losing out again in 2011 as vice to Cllr. Winston Tubman against Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.
Before declaring his intention to run for the senate, Weah was in 2011 elected a vice presidential candidate to Cllr. Winston Tubman a at stage-managed convention, ending several unproductive negotiations with scores of politicians who saw the CDC as a strong force to get in partnership with.
However, Mr. Solo further told a talk show hosted on Truth FM 96.1 on Thursday that by the term “unpredictable,” he meant he could not predict Weah’s action, but not necessarily in a negative context.
Unlike Mr. Weah, Mr. Solo said if he were the one running for a seat with all the noise in the CDC, he would have done the most important thing to first quiet the noise and reorganize the party before going into the race.
But he says for his knowledge of Mr. Weah, he’s unpredictable on the ground that “he could want to run, and he could be sitting down and saying I will resolve this thing next week.”
