The Chairman of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) and Political Leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Alexander B. Cummings, has used the occasion of his birth anniversary to call on the voters to punish the CDC government through their votes tomorrow for being “cruel and insensitive to the needs of the citizenry”.
“Today, December 7, is my birthday, and tomorrow is election day. All I want for my birthday is a victory for our candidates tomorrow. A new Senate will hold the government accountable and force them to do the right things. This is why it is important that you come out in droves to vote,” the CPP chairman called on voters around the country.
He said the opposition has no trust in the current Elections Commission, noting that NEC has proven to be a partisan Commission that cannot be trusted.
“We have seen their level of incompetence and open partisanship. They were very delayed in providing the FRR/Final Registered voters Roll in violation of the NEC law, which says 30 days to elections. They have failed to implement the ruling of the Supreme Court on the Referendum, which necessitated the issuance of a new Gazette. They have refused to work with and listen to other political parties. This NEC works at the dictates of the President and the CDC party mandate,” Cummings averred.
“This government does not care about you. Tomorrow, you must prove to them that the people’s mandate is greater than a party’s mandate. You must show them that your votes will not be tampered with, and you will not allow these elections to be stolen from you,” Mr. Cummings advised.
He said, as the CPP finishes up last-minute details with their polling and Precinct workers, completing logistics and set up of their war rooms, they know that victory is certain.
“As a people, we will never use the barrel of the gun again against each other, but we will use our ballots to punish those who suffer us. You must stand up to this CDC govt for being cruel and insensitive to your needs. You must punish them through your votes tomorrow,” Mr. Cummings blasted.
