Liberia: CPP Denies Being in Talk with Ruling CDC for Possible Collaboration


MONROVIA – The Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) has described as “disinformation” the assertion by the ruling party’s Secretary General, Jefferson Koijeee that the CDC is in talks with the CPP constituent member, ANC, for a collaboration.

The CPP now comprises the Alternative National Congress which is historically a break away from the CDC and the Liberty Party.

The CPP categorically denied being in talks with the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change.

The CPP stated in a statement: “This is not only wishful thinking on the part of the CDC regime that has lost its way, but a shameful and callous lie intended to sow seeds of discord and confusion within the ranks of the CPP and in the minds of the Liberian people and draw attention away from the dismal performance of the CDC administration over the past five years. Even after five years of squandering the nation’s resources, and most recently embarking on an almost two-month jolly-jolly vacation, during which $1.5 Million of taxpayers’ money was wasted, President George Weah and the CDC remain insensitive, unaccountable, and unapologetic to the Liberian people.” 

Describing the Weah-led administration as a “wicked regime”, the CPP stated that neither of its two constituent members is interested in patronage from the CDC which, according to them, has outlived its usefulness.

The CPP further assured its supporters that it remains committed to its agenda for socio-economic advancement, democratic consolidation, and making the failed regime of President Weah a one-term Presidency.
