MONROVIA-A Stalwart of the Unity Party, RiverGee County Senator Conmany Wisseh has strongly differ with some of his comrades for early deceleration of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) standard bearer position.
According to him, such attitude on the Part of some of his friends and leaders of the CPP to declare their support to any of the candidates is contrary to the CPP Framework Document.
Speaking Monday on the OK Afternoon Conversation, the Unity Party Stalwart did not declare his support to the political leader of the unity Party Joseph Boakai for the CPP standard Bearer.
“I am a very serious person who supports processes; we agree that as political leaders in our parties that today , the stage at which we are, we elected our standard bearer for Unity Party Mr. Joseph Boakai and ANC elected their standard Bearer Alexander Cummings, we say the two of them should carry out consultations , it is not the correct thing to do for me or anyone who is not part of that process to start making declaration, we want them to do it; so as a serious leader, I am not going to be led to make such a statement, we must succeed consistent with the process that we signed out to” he indicated
Senator Wisseh however predicted prospect within the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) in the shortest time.
According to Senator Wisseh, all of those political disagreements are intended to make a decisive decision on how to lead the CPP ticket for the upcoming 2023 general and presidential elections.
He said it is clear fact that no one individual and a political party can win the presidency in the 2023 presidential elections.
“One man going alone no matter what they think, they do not lead them to victory ,so all of the parties have come together realized that they could not make it alone, Unity Party came in the 2017 election as second and sat down in a meeting with three other parties and say that we want to go into a CPP arrangement and we have the framework document that is in force” Senator Wisseh indicated.
He further indicated that, those who have alleged that the CPP framework document were tempered with, they are unable to prove their allegation.
Senator Wisseh said because the accusers are unable to provide evidence, he considers that the CPP framework document will work.
He disclosed that the CPP Leadership is using the framework document to implement all of the agreements on how to arrive at who will lead the CPP Ticket.
“In line with the FD, we have two individuals who are vying for the CPP stander Bearer, they are Joseph Boakai of Unity Party and the Alternative National Congress (ANC)Alexander Cummings , these two people will consult between themselves , the two people who are the candidates” he noted.
Senator Wisseh additionally revealed that if the two candidates fail to reach an agreement between themselves , they will get eminent person to talk to them stressing that if that person doesn’t succeed than they will do perception survey.
According to him, the fourth level in getting the CPP stander Bearer per the Framework is the convention that is provided for by the election law of Liberia.
“That convention is observed by the National Elections Commission of Liberia, and at the end of it the two people contesting one person will win, so there is no change that CPP will not come out with a standard Bearer” he said.
Senator Wisseh further said the selection of the CPP Stander Bearer will be in line with the election law of Liberia that is slated for 2022.
“The people of Liberia have a right because they think very highly about the CPP, they have to worry about what is going on, because people really want proper change” he said.
