Collaborating Political Parties’ Vice Standard Bearer Reiterates Commitment to Peaceful Election Through Farmington Declaration
Cllr. Brumskine firmly condemned such behavior, deeming it alarming and unacceptable in the context of fostering a democratic and peaceful election process. During the funeral proceedings for the late Hans Barchue, where political figures converged to pay their respects, individuals donning Unity Party attire were reportedly witnessed hurling insults and threats toward Musa Hassan Bility, Chairman of the Liberty Party.
According to Cllr. Brumskine, such actions orchestrated by supposed Unity Party supporters not only endanger the collaborative efforts of the Liberty Party and the CPP, but also run counter to the aspiration of building a stronger democracy in Liberia. Urging unity among political parties, she called upon the Unity Party to stand in solidarity with the CPP and condemn the occurrences at Mr. Barchue’s funeral.
The CPP Vice Standard Bearer asserted that, for Liberia’s democratic progress to thrive, political parties and their leaders must desist from undermining other political institutions. She emphasized that the Supreme Court’s ruling has determined that the Liberty Party, like any other political entity, is governed by its executive committee rather than a single political leader. She urged for a collective commitment to strengthen Liberia’s democratic foundations and abstain from fracturing political institutions.
