Liberty Party Endorses Cummings for CPP Presidential Ticket

The opposition Liberty Party today, Saturday, December 18, 2021 at its Special National Convention in Ganta, Nimba County endorsed the Standard Bearer of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) Mr. Alexander B. Cummings as its choice for the sole presidential ticket for the Collaborating Political Parties and onward towards the proper presidential election in 2023.

Speaking briefly to the Press during the break session of the convention, the National Chairman of the party, Mr. Musa Hassan Bility said the decision was taken after a thorough vetting process that had delegates both in attendance and via zoom voting overwhelmingly for the ANC leader.

Mr. Bility said before the endorsement process, delegates voted to formalize the party’s earlier position not to field any presidential candidate in 2023.

“The delegates voted overwhelmingly and took the decision not to present any presidential election in 2023. That being said, the party unanimously endorsed Mr. Alexander Cummings as its choice for the primary and subsequently for the election in 2023. The Liberty Party will stand by this decision and will vigorously campaign for Mr Cummings moving forward”, he said.

Mr. Bility said the endorsement represents the mandate of the vast majority of the people who have spoken at the special national convention, which is the highest decision making body of the party.

When asked whether this latest development will not be another source of long battle within the party, Mr. Bility said that should not arise at all because it was a unanimous position taken. However, he said individuals who are aggrieved could seek legal redress, stressing that as a party that believes in the rule of law, it will not stand against the process.

He said the decision of the party will not be communicated to the Political Leader, Senator Nyonblee Karngar Lawrence because she remains suspended for defaulting due payment. He said the party will formally communicate with its partisans at the end of the convention.
