Yarkpa disclosed that since March 16, 2022  the Board of Commissioners of  the National Elections Commission (NEC)  has given the People Restoration Party (PRP) a mandate that within twenty (20) days the party should conduct its convention before the  2023 presidential election.

“Based on our convention, we are bringing delegates from three counties to grace this occasion on April 4. 2022”, he said.

Yarkpa mentioned that the convention will be protected by members of the Liberia National Police (LNP) because of the stampede that was experienced at the D-Tweh Football field months ago.

The PRP Chairperson, said the convention committee has not sent in the names of those candidates who have expressed interest in vying for the positions within the People Restoration Party, but did not name the various positions that are to be contested for during the convention.

He added, “You know as a Political Party, we have an obligation to our people to restore proud to our party”.
