The national executive committee of the opposition party, Union of Liberian Democrats (ULD), has denied rumors circulating among it partisans that the party has held meetings with the ruling Unity Party (UP) aimed at forming a merger.
The ULD’s assistant secretary for press and propaganda, Emmanuel S. Kendima, described the rumors as not only “diabolical, but false, misleading, and has no iota of truth.”
“While it is true that ULD wants to collaborate with any political party including the UP, the decision should be taken with the general consensus of the party’s executive members, not just one or two individuals to go around and present themselves as ULD,” Kendima said in a Daily Observer exclusive interview yesterday.
Meanwhile, ULD’s Executive Committee has called on partisans and the party sympathizers to not engage in any act inimical to the idea of collaborating with a political party, which is important to ensure victory at the October polls.
“Again, at no time did the ULD meet with any UP official for possible political collaboration, or a merger with any other party for that matter. Therefore, those involved in making such a statement should stop, for the good of the party,” Kendima said.
