TWP Endorsement of CDC Backfires

A decision by the national chairman of the erstwhile grand old True Wing Party (TWP) to endorse the opposition Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) for the December 26 run-off election has been challenged by an executive of the party.

On Tuesday, Reginald Goodridge announced his party’s decision to support the CDC in line with their platform to unseat the ruling Unity Party (UP) of Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai.

The party’s Montserrado County chairman, C.T.O King, who vehemently disagreed with Goodridge’s decision, described the action as “unilateral.”

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer on Tuesday, King argued that the party’s executive committee did not sanction Goodridge’s decision, thereby making it unofficial.

“I have the endorsement of the executive committee to speak on behalf of the party against the fake one Goodridge announced to the CDC,” King declared.

“Our constitution provides that any decision of the party must be firstly approved by the executive committee and not a single person like Mr. Goodridge,” King said.

He clarified that the TWP executive committee has not made any decision as to which party to support during the pending runoff presidential election.

“We have partisans all over the county, and if we want to make any decision, it should be done in consultation with them, but not by an individual like Goodridge,” King said.

“Goodridge’s action is unconstitutional, so I urge the CDC leadership not to take it serious by doing any business with Mr. Goodridge in the name of the party,” King warned.

King recalled how Goodridge exercised a similar unilateral decision when he singlehandedly endorsed the standard bearer of the party during the October 10 presidential and legislative elections.

“We challenged that decision at the National Elections Commission (NEC), which resulted to the electoral body denying the party from producing a standard bearer at the just ended presidential and legislative elections,” King said.

While Goodridge was yet to respond to the issue, King said the matter was still undecided at the NEC.

  1. Ah!…a yah. The train is half fill when all are not on board. Therefore; it cannot leave the station. Everybody is welcome to take seat. This is the only way Liberia will move forward. We are all Liberian, any one can feel free to join a party or form a coalition with any political Party. TWP can collaborate with CDC, CDC with LP, UP with NPP, and so forth.
    “ONE FINGER CANNOT PICK UP A GRAIN”. It takes so many brans to build Liberia. Therefore; Welcome everyone: “Yana-Boy”, “Gronar Boy”, illiterate, literate, politicians, critics, friends, foes, former warlords ex-combatants, Bassa, Mandingo, Krue, Lorma… at the end, we all should arrived safely.

  2. I GUESS LIBERIA REALLY HAS NO REAL MEN! REGINALD GOODRIDGE IS A TAYLOR A**HOLE WHO ROBBED AND BETRAYED LIBERIA AND LIBERIANS! REGINALD GOODRICH IS AS MUCH A DAMN TRAITOR AS TAYLOR, UREY, ALLEN AND THE OTHER THIEVES! USELESS BASTARD!

  3. Goodridge thinks THE TWP is his private party. .Sir , your time is over. Welcome to the NEW TWP.
    remember: DEALS NOT WORDS. we are talking our party back.

  4. TWP your time is over! Go to sleep forever. This party is responsible for Liberia’s underdevelopment. They suppressed and denied the natives or indigenous the opportunity to achieve a quality education. They sent their children to the best private schools and refused to equip public schools where majority of us the natives attended. Shame on your!! CDC or UP do not need your party support. The time of the people has come and no more so say one so say all.
