According to an ANC’s release, those expected to be elected in Liberia’s second emerging industrial City of Ganta in Nimba County, will be the National Executive Committee members, who will take the party to the next national elections.
The party, which is one of four opposition political parties working together in a collaboration, said hundreds of their partisans, party stalwarts, auxiliary groups and well-wishers have started converging on Ganta for what party hierarchy terms as a “critical political decider” in view of the enormous task ahead.
“The ANC is also expected to elect a political leader whose leadership will set the tune for a progressive political direction of the party amid Liberia’s turbulent moment,” the release said.
Party officials say Saturday, May 4, is indeed the D-Day for the new political leadership, who will present his/her platform containing the true and best alternative Liberia can count on; adding: “if the nation must rise again in order to make the dreams of Liberians alive thereby putting smiles to their faces.”
