Collaborating Political Parties’ Vice Standard Bearer Reiterates Commitment to Peaceful Election Through Farmington Declaration

MONROVIA – In a fervent affirmation, Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine, Vice Standard Bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), has restated her party’s unwavering dedication to upholding the Farmington Declaration—a pact aimed at ensuring a violence-free election environment.
Cllr. Brumskine pointedly highlighted that not all political parties are adhering to the principles laid out in the Farmington Declaration, drawing attention to a recent violent clash involving supporters of the ruling Coalition for Democracy Change and the opposition Unity Party.
Expressing her deep concerns, Cllr. Brumskine revealed that she personally encountered threats in Grand Bassa from individuals purportedly affiliated with the Unity Party at the burial of the late Hans Barchue, former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.
“At the funeral of Hon. Hans Barchue, I, as the Vice Standard Bearer of the CPP, was subjected to threats and violence by some members of the Unity Party. It was very disturbing,” Cllr. Brumskine stated, underscoring the seriousness of the incident.

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.
