NEC Rejects Nyonblee’s Request To Use Liberty Party’s 2015 Constitution – SG Martin Kollah

Liberty Party of Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine remains in crisis to date ahead of the CPP nomination slated for next year.

Martin Saye Kollah, the Secretary-General, and Musa Bility, Chairman are on one side while Senator Nyonblee Karnga Lawrence and Senator Darius Dillon are on the other.

Speaking on a local radio Tuesday in Monrovia, the Secretary-General said the Political Leader of the Party, Madam Lawrence sent a communication to the National Election Commission (NEC) to allow her to use the 2015 constitution instead of the existing, controversial 2021 document which was vehemently rejected by the NEC.

According to Kollah the 2015 constitution gives the right to the full dissolution of the Executive Committee of the party as well as the right to commit the LP to another party without the Executive Committee which Madam Lawrence is craving to utilize given the current circumstances in the party.

‘Cllr. Brumskine was a father of the party who infact owned the party so none of us could challenge him, besides we barely saw the constitution but today we are righting the wrongs,’ he stated.

Kollah said it is unacceptable for anyone in this age and time to think they can remove all executives of the party as being done in the PLP.

The LP is deeply divided leaving partisans in a state of confusion ahead of who becomes the next head of the CPP to face incumbent George Weah in 2023.

A proposed ‘Bloc Voting’ expected to see over 310 delegates voted by one individual has seen sharp public reactions though the LP leader, ex VP Boakai and Benoni Urey are accepting the move.

Cummings of the ANC has since rejected the move and called it unfortunate and undemocratic, calling for reform as the CPP forges ahead.

He told a news conference Monday that his party is going nowhere but at the same time will continue to speak out on issues that tend to reverse the progress they have made.

This followed a walkout of a CPP meeting recently.
