Opposition cancels Oct 28 planned nationwide protest

The opposition Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) has cancelled her planned protest action even before a ruling comes out of the Supreme Court of Liberia.

CPP earlier filed a writ of mandamus on the upcoming senatorial election highlighting several violations and maintained she would protest where the issues thereof not addressed.

The group said cardinal amongst the several electoral issues raised was an unconditional clean up of the voter roll ahead of the crucial midterm.

In a Monday’s release the CPP said the Supreme Court’s action to place a hold on the entire election sends a signal of a great intervention from the body so her action going forward had to be suspended.

Fifteen seats are up for grasp with election slated for December 8.

The December election is crucial given it will be taking place on the heels of the 2023 General and Presidential election.

Top winners from six big counties are expected to be key faces to watch in that Presidential election so both opposition and incumbent are currently wooing supporters.

Crucial amongst the seats up for grasp are Montserrado, Nimba, Grand Bassa, Bong and Lofa.

In the 2017 election, a reported messy voter roll the opposition said led to their defeat and so they are now leaving no stone unturned.
