In the wake of the recent back and forth uncomplimentary statements hauled against by members of the constituent parties of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) the political leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Mr. Alexander B. Cummings, has called for a total halt to the unwelcome exhibition and forge ahead towards working as a unified force towards the 2023 general elections.
Speaking over the weekend at the official appreciation program of the re-election team of Senator Abraham Darius Dillon of Montserrado County, Mr. Cummings expressed dismay over what he called an embarrassing situation to see one family that should be together for a cause going against each other.
“Yes, sincerely this is not what we should be doing. This will undermine our quest to make George Weah a one term President”, Mr. Cummings said
He called on the partisans of the four constituent parties making the leading opposition block to part aside their individual differences and work for the success of the CPP which he described as the only hope for a genuine change away from what is happening under the CDC led government.
When asked how he sees the chances of CPP remaining together and presenting a single candidate for the presidency in 2023, the businessman turned politician said in the affirmative that the CPP will be intact up to the election and will present a single presidential ticket that will wrestle power from the ruling establishment.
“There is no doubt about that. CPP will remain as a united family and will present a single candidate in 2023. There are processes leading to the selection of the candidate and whoever emerges will get the support of the rest of the constituent parties”, Mr. Cummings said.
Mr. Cummings made these clarifications and voiced out these statements of assurances against the backdrop of the recent sustained attack and counterattack between and among members of the four constituent parties as to who among the front leaders that is best suited to lead the joint ticket and emerge victorious against President Weah who will be seeking re-election in 2023.
These bickering could be seen on the various social media platforms and heard on most of the radio talk shows in and around Monrovia. The CPP is finalizing arrangements to host its primaries to be followed by a convention to elect the single presidential candidate against the 2023 elections.
