Sen. Weah to partisans: “Don’t be deceived or distracted. While they are complaining, they are also campaigning.”

-But Said Liberia’s Peace, Stability Lies in the Hands of the Supreme Court

The Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) has urged thousands of its partisans, supporters and well-wishers to behave “peacefully” throughout the campaigns ahead of the November 7 runoff, amidst concerns of potential political violence.

The Standard Bearer of the CDC, Sen. George M. Weah told “partisans” to remain law-abiding during the campaigns and the runoff election, as the party also pledged to campaign peacefully.

In a jam-packed press conference at the Rotunda of the Capitol Building on Capitol Hill yesterday, Sen. Weah stated that, amid the diverse political ideologies, Liberia remains the common interest and every Liberian must put the country first.

“Peace isn’t something we wish for, it’s something we make, it’s something we make, it’s something we do, it’s something we are and is something we give away,” Sen. Weah quoted.

The CDC standard bearer boasted of being an embodiment of peace over the years, from 2005 up to present and told his partisans to not be deceived or distracted, but should remained peaceful and come out on Tuesday, November 7 to vote the CDC.

UP’s Strategy

In a firm voice, the CDC political leader said the CDC will campaign across the countries to ensure victory.

He warned his “partisans” to be aware of the scheme of the ruling Unity Party (UP), adding, “don’t be deceived or distracted. While they are complaining, they are also campaigning.”

Supreme Court

Meanwhile, as it relates to the CDC’s pledge to remain and campaign peacefully, he said: “We like to state that the peace and stability of the country lies in the hands of the Honorable Supreme Court.”

He indicated that the “voice of the people is the voice of God and the will of the people should and must be heard.”

Sen. Weah was quick to point out to call on the international community to observe the elections for the voice of the people to be heard. He opined that he has been in politics for 12 years, and the experience he had in 2011, is exactly what the UP is experiencing now.

Congratulations

Sen. Weah meanwhile congratulated the National Elections Commission (NEC) for the October 10’s elections, which he termed as “peaceful.” He also thanked the 22 CDC lawmakers-elect, both new and incumbent, and consoled those lawmakers who lost the election, saying they are still on the same team.

He also commended the political parties for holding up to the Farmington Declaration.

He called on the ECOWAS Parliament and other members of the international community to pay close attention to Liberia, as she goes through election.

  1. Liberia’s current system of governance is corrupt by design and exists to enrich and empower politicians while keeping the citizens poor and illiterate. We must end this deadly system that promotes ritualistic killings. Senator Grupee suggested introduction of the “Death Penalty” for ritualistic killers (17 deaths reported in first 6 months of 2016) but “death penalty” law is not enough because most cases are unreported, never investigated and even if a suspect is arrested, he is innocent until proven guilty. How about taking the incentive of excessive salaries and benefits of politicians away? Just cut off foreign aid to the countries where government is designed to enrich and empower politicians like Liberia, Sa Leone, Uganda,..etc. More Americans are joining us in our bid to cut off foreign aid to Liberia until democracy is instituted. “99 days for rogues but one day for the master.” http://www.mastersday.com The attached mutilated and murdered child is 13 years old Princess. She represents hundreds killed because of the incentives of excessive salaries and benefits of politicians. The system is broken and we as human beings must create a new system. The corrupt system was designed by human beings. We don’t need to live with the deadly system.Californian lawmakers earn US$104,118.00 annually with a US$270 billion dollars budget. Liberian lawmakers earn over US$200,000.00 with a US$550 million dollars budget. 38% of American worker/taxpayers earn US$20,000.00 or less annually. 50% of American workers earn US$30,000.00 or less annually. Our corrupt system is not desirable to most Liberians. That is why we must cut off foreign aid to Liberia and all poor countries with excessive salaries and benefits immediately.

  2. In the interest of the people and for total development and progress for all Liberians CDC must Go and victory is assured.God bless!

    • So if CDC go who’s best to develop that shit ass country. Weah Will do great things we Liberian meant to learn how to expect change. Batman messed up to do business in Liberia after his career realize his mistake so if he president he definitely going to develop that country

  3. This is the attitude and care we expect from political leaders instead planning to cause chaos and confusion. Our people suffered enough from the hands of re educated. This is not education but greed

  4. Talk of peace must be backed by action in support of peace to make a difference. In Gbarnga very recently, CDC fighters assaulted a young man called Togba Yallah for what the fighters alleged was an insulting word against Weah by Yallah. The people of Liberia are again. living in fear after 12 years of peace.

  5. So if CDC go who’s best to develop that shit ass country. Weah Will do great things we Liberian meant to learn how to expect change. That man messed up to do business in Liberia after his career realize his mistake so if he president he definitely going to develop that country

  6. The in charge 57% silent registered voters control brought forward awaits final presidential result to insure transfer of executive power to the appropriate people of Liberia for a peaceful inaugural transition of the Liberian people by the Republic of Liberia, a secret heritage wish shall long be ours.
    Gone to silence. Let the people of Liberia know.
