One of Mr. Cummings contention was the extension of the chairperson of the CPP, liberty Party political leader Nyonblee Lawrence that is fully supported by rest of the two other constituent political parties political leaders that included former Vice President Boakai and that of Mr. Urey.
Mr. Cummings also opposed the voting of the CPP Standard bearer through a block voting process that is not included in the frame work document.
Following the walk out in the executive meeting of the CPP by Mr. Cummings as a protest of his objection to the violation of the CPP Document , the three other constituent leaders Mr. Urey , former vice President Boakai , Senator Lawrence addressed the media on the issue of Mr. Cummings walking out of the meeting and other relevant information.
The Chairperson of the CPP Senator Lawrence said during their meeting, they requested for those among them who have interest in becoming the standard bearer of the CPP to make their intention known.
According to Senator Lawrence , Unity Party Political leader former Vice President Joseph Boakai told them , in the meeting that , he Was chosen by the Unity Party to contest for the CPP standard bearership while the Alternative National Congress political leader, Mr. Alexander Cummings informed the gathering that , he was going to inform his partisans so that that they can make a decision through a convention.
Something she said was welcome by all of the other political Leaders requesting him to inform them the time so that all of the political leaders of the CPP can be in attendance.
The CPP Chairperson further indicated that during their meeting, the body requested Mr. Cummings to give them the time line for his conviction, something according her Mr. Cummings did not give credence, indicating that it was not a part of the Framework document of the CPP.
For the All Liberian Party Political Leader Benoni Urey admitted of some shortcomings with the CPP Framework.
He indicated that during the signing ceremony of the CPP framework document, there were five original copies of the document with the objective of one copy was going to be given to each of the political leaders and one for the National Elections Commission (NEC) .
According to him, since they signed the CPP framework document, he Urey, Senator Lawrence and Boakai are yet to get their copies of the CPP Framework document.
With such revelation by Mr. Urey that they do not have the CPP Framework document, it is clear that the leadership of the CPP is working contrary to their agreement that has been detected by Mr. Cummings.
In his pledge to keep the leadership upholding the CPP Framework document, the Leadership of the Unity Party invited Mr. Cummings to attend their endorsement of the former vice president Joseph Boakai as their candidate for the CPP Standard bearer; that which he rejected and condemned that it was not in line with the agreement.
The rest of the political leaders of the CPP were in attendance only Mr. Cummings who is now a lone person, who is going contrary to the violation of the CPP Document.
