..... …. I want us to be more angry that the ruling party, from which the CDC (Weah ruling Coalition) decided to rescue us after 12 years of mismanagement, is now telling the Liberian people to go back from where they were rescued from,” Brumskine said.
Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine, the Vice Presidential running mate of Alexander Cummings, launched a scathing attack on the former ruling Unity Party's "rescue mission."
The Unity Party, which held power for 12 years before the Weah administration, had introduced the "rescue mission" as a campaign slogan for the October 10 polls.
The party under former Vice President Joseph Boakai believes that the Weah government ‘has failed miserably and it is only he and the Unity that has what it takes to rescue the country from’ “further mess.”
But Brumskine believes that the Unity Party's so-called 'rescue mission' was nothing more than a web of empty promises and hollow rhetoric.
According to Brumskine, the Unity Party, during its 12 years of rule, engaged in corruption and mismanagement, which exacerbated the poverty situation of the county, which is now being made worse by the Weah administration.
“I want us to be righteously angry to the level of suffering that is happening, but I want us to be more angry that the ruling party, from which the CDC (Weah ruling Coalition) decided to rescue us after 12 years of mismanagement, is now telling the Liberian people to go back from where they were rescued from,” she added.
Brumskine noted that Boakai and his Unity Party were entrusted with 12 years to improve the lives of the people but ultimately fell short of their promises.
She added it is now time for Liberians to see reason and grant others the opportunity "to accomplish what both the Unity Party and the current CDC administration have been unable to achieve for the people of Liberia.”
The daughter of the late legal luminary and founder of the Liberty Party, Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine made the remarks following the return support of some members of the party who were once part of Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence of Grand Bassa County faction when the Liberty Party was in chaos.
Meanwhile, Brumskine also frowned on the decision of Lawrence, and others to abandon the party for the former ruling Unity Party.
“We don't need people that will jump from one institution to the another depending on the popularity of the institution,” she said. “We need people who will stand no matter what for Liberia.”
Brumskine noted that greed and petty interests on the part of politicians had tainted Liberian politics which is bad for the welfare of the nation.
“ I want everyone to know that UP and a few others have been the reason that our institution has been torn apart,” Brumskine added. “When I look at the intentional efforts of the political institution who wants to come into power to destroy the Liberty Party.”
However, Daniel Sando, an aide to Lawrence and former senior official of the party accused Brumskine of only seeking political “relevance at the expense of his boss.”
Sando noted that Brumskine's actions are primarily aimed at generating public relations to mitigate the repercussions of certain desperate moves and mistakes she has made since entering politics.
“Charlyne is a daughter of the founding father of Liberty Party and she’s doing everything humanly possible to tear down, derail, denigrate, and destroy the legality of her father.
When Cllr. [Charles] Brumskine was alive, he turned the party over to Senator Lawrence as a political leader. Why would Charlylne Brumskine be fighting the legitimate leadership of the party?” he asked.
“So by virtue of her action, she has derailed the political legacy of her father so she ought to even be ashamed of herself.”
