MONROVIA-In the wake of the impending October 10, 2023’s Legislative and Presidential Elections, the Ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) and the main opposition Political Party in Liberia, Unity Party, (UP) have been greeted negatively by some Liberians.
Engaging the views of some Liberians in Paynesville, there were mixed reactions.
Some vowed not to support the reelection bid of President George M. Weah, while there were others pledging support to the Election of Ambassador Joseph N. Boakai.
James Kollie, a motorcyclist, at ELWA’s Junction told our reporter that he voted for CDC, during the 2017’s Legislative and Presidential Elections.
But, he expressed total dissatisfaction with the poor performance of the Liberian Leader.
“We voted for President George Weah, but we are not seeing anything that this government is doing, only a few people enjoying, and we who suffered to vote for CDC are suffering more than Ma Ellen’s Time “Kollie said.
In reaction to Kollie’s assertions, Augustine Flomo, another motorcyclist vowed to support the reelection of President Weah.
“The Government cannot do everything in six years but the Government and the President are doing their best, see the Road right in front of us at ELWA Junction, I am going to UL and not paying tuition, let’s give the man his 12 years, “Flomo said.
Also speaking, a dried goods businesswoman, Comfort Johnson vowed not to support Weah’s reelection bid.
“This country is something different, the citizens are crying and the Government Officials are enjoying it, but because of elections, they are coming back to us, I am not going to make nobody rich,” she said.
