MONROVIA-It appears that following the massive defeat of the Collaborating Political Parties(CPP) in the four By-Elections, District ten Representative Yekeh Kolubah has reportedly announced his withdrawal from his party the alternative national congress (ANC) one of the constituent parties within the CPP.
His decision to exit the CPP is due to the continuous internal wrangling among members parties, something his fear is not settle could lead to an even worse situation in 2023, evidence by the by-elections.
In a Communication to the CPP dated Wednesday, November 18, 2021, Kolubah noted “Beginning today, I will official distance myself from all activities of my party the ANC and the CPP which I joined, can’t you see the results from the just ended By-Elections.”
The lawmaker had with immediate effect distanced himself from all activities of the ANC and the CPP by extension on grounds that the CPP has lost its value due to the constant disarray in the party.
NEC’s preliminary results from 100% of the votes counted for the 4 counties, Finda Gborie Lassanah, an Independent Candidate of Bomi leads with 3,945, James Kolleh, PUP leads with 3,890, as well as Madison Gweoin of the Liberia Restoration Party and Sam Brown, Independent Candidate District Number One Grand Gedeh and Nimba Counties respectively.
Considering the result, Kolubah vows to contest the representative seat as an independent candidate should the CPP continues on such footing; he will have no option but to contest as an independent Candidate in the 2023 elections.
He furthered if the CPP intends to take state power from the CDC, it must display its political strengths in By-Elections of such.
“We are not going to have rivalry. I will not have anything to do with the CPP, I am going to remain neutral and be an independent Candidate in the coming Elections.”
Preliminary results from the National Elections Commission (NEC) also suggest defeat for the main opposition CPP and ruling party as both of them have lost all four areas where the by-elections were conducted.
