Cummings Thanks Liberians for Voting -Excited Over CPP Candidates’ Performance -Confident CPP Will do Well
The Chairman of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) and Political Leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Alexander B. Cummings, has thanked Liberians for coming out to vote and making their voice heard in the just-ended midterm senatorial and referendum elections.
According to Mr. Cummings who took to social media late Tuesday as provisional results from the elections started to pour in, CPP candidates are showing very good signs of winning from the preliminary results received thus far.
“We are excited that the CPP candidates are showing very good signs of winning from the preliminary results we have gotten so far. It is my hope that the NEC conducts the election with integrity!!! To members of the CPP and the opposition community, we are doing our best to protect your votes, even though there were multiple examples of irregularities, which we documented.” Mr. Cummings averred.
Tally of provisional results already placed Montserrado County incumbent Senator Abraham Darius Dillon comfortably leading his main rival, Montserrado County District #5 Representative Thomas Fallah.
CPP’s Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence is also poised to defeat her main rival Gbezonghar Findley in Grand Bassa County, while former Defense Minister Brownie Samukai is reportedly overcoming in Lofa County.
Edith Gongloe-Weh is also reportedly leading in Nimba County, while CPP candidate Prince Moye is set to dethrone CDC’s Bong County candidate Senator Henry Yallah.
In River Gee, former Lone Star striker Jonathan Sogbie is said to be topping as the CPP candidate, while CPP candidate Simeon Taylor has reportedly secured a comfortable lead in Grand Cape Mount County over his main rival incumbent senator Victor Watson.
Pundits are saying that victory for the opposition CPP in Liberia’s topmost vote-rich regions – Montserrado, Lofa, Nimba, Bassa and Bong Counties, portends a tougher ride for the ruling CDC in the 2023 presidential and general elections.
