Speaking to reporters immediately after the meeting, Senator McGill said all those who were selected were chosen on a unanimous basis, saying that the Caucus has decided to constitute its leadership to play its role as opposition party legislators.

“I am honored today to be elected as Chairman of the CDC Legislative Caucus. This decision marks an important milestone in our party’s ongoing efforts to rebrand and strengthen our collective commitment to the party’s agenda. I want to thank my colleagues for entrusting me to lead this noble body,” Senator McGill said, adding that the party remains supreme. .

On the leadership    Senator McGill indicated that two issues were discussed during the meeting, including the issue of the Caucus’ leadership and that of the Budget.

Concerning the prompted meeting, Senator McGill said the meeting was about leadership, and noted that two issues were discussed during the meeting. He named the issue constituting the leadership for the CDC Legislative Caucus and that of the Budget.

The Margibi County Senator indicated that the budget must be investigated. “We talk of transparency here, we will only support the budget if we have full detailed clarifications,” he indicated further.

McGill noted that there must be accountability, pointing out, “We don’t know what is there for the domestic debt of $5 million   and we want an explanation. The $2 million for operation, we want full detail and the $26 million for civil servants. Those are the two major things we discuss at the meeting. The budget is a short term budget and in that short term budget there is a lot to look at.” He said.

Asked whether the move was a plan to undermine the government, Senator McGill responded in the negative. “We are not undermining; we want to make sure those things promised to the Liberia people come to pass.  As for the CDC we have learned our lessons.”

He furthered, “We are not undermining the government because to undermine the government is to undermine the Liberian people; we will support it in a more concrete term.

However, he said the will be resolved to ensure that the right thing is done; and the right thing must be done.  You will not use deception to come to power and when you come you do otherwise,” McGill exclaimed.

Quizzed whether this is the rebranding for President Weah to come back to power 2029, he dismissed that question.  He said the CDC is not about who comes to power 2029, but they were working to ensure that the Liberian people are served well.

He then noted that he will be tough to hold his colleagues to their standing rules.
