All roads lead to Supreme Court as CPP files legal action against NEC today

The Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) is expected to begin a march at the Supreme Court of Liberia to file legal actions against the National Election Commission (NEC) for alleged several electoral offenses.

Already the headquarters of the Liberty Party is getting alive with political actors arriving and political slogans being echoed in the air.

Amongst many issues in the legal documentation is the uncontrollable voters trucking, refusal to clean up the Voter Roll amongst others.

The opposition CPP accuses NEC of engaging in a voter roll update basically characterized by fraud and illegality; wrongfully proceeding by piling up the already messy voter roll.

CPP Leader, Alexander B. Cummings, Benoni W. Urey, Nyonblee Karnga Lawrwnce and Joseph N. Boakai, members of the CPP Legislative Caucus, candidates for CPP December 8 Senatorial election and leaders of the four constituent parties are expected to lead the parade to the court where the legal team of the body will file official papers.

As of last evening CPP informed leaders of the constituent political parties, members of the CPP’s Legislative Caucus, all candidates for the December 2020 Senatorial Elections, members of the Advisory Council, Executive Committee and Secretariat of the CPP, to assemble at the Headquarters of the Liberty Party to escort the CPP’s Legal Team to the Supreme Court for the filing of Legal Actions against the National Elections Commission.

Meanwhile a member of the ruling party Acarous Gray termed their action a scare tactics meant to render the election unfair even before the process commences.

He told a local radio that the opposition establishment should man up and go to the December polls expected to be free, fair and transparent.
