As PLP Political Leader assures One Round Victory, Pres. Weah welcomes Six New Parties With Open Arms


As the much-publicized 2023 Presidential and Legislative Elections draw closer, the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) at the weekend made a break with the alignment of six new political parties.

The six new parties are the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE), Redemption Democratic Party (RDC), Change Democratic Actions (CDA), United People’s Party (UPP), People’s Liberation Party(PL) and Union of Liberian Democrats (ULD).

Speaking at the well-attended program, the Political Leader of the PLP, E. Tapple Doe, vowed his party’s commitment to work through the length and breadth of the country to ensure that President George Manneh Weah gets another six-year mandate.

“Today marks a historic moment in the democratic space of our country to see nine parties coming together,” Mr. Doe stated.

According to him, the decision is an outcome of consultations of stakeholders from the six parties, who believe that the best for the country is President Weah.

“We have seen your enormous developments and so we decided to endorse your re-election bid. We will together make your dream come true – we assure you of our commitment. We need one round to ensure we use whatever resources for the development of our nation. We want to thank all of our partisans from all of the constituents’ political parties for this wake up call. We are grateful to you as we together, we will President Weah dream a reality,’’ Mr. Doe, who served as head of the Planning and Program Committee of Saturday’s Program, added.

President George Manneh Weah, with open arms, wholeheartedly welcomed the six parties to the Coalition for Democratic Change(CDC).

President Weah promised them a comfort zone with a vow to win a first-round victory in the ensuing electoral process.

The Liberian leader and political leader of the CDC described the decision of the six parties as patriotic honor that aims to safe the country more cost on elections.

“I want to thank all of you for the trust you put in our party to come and join us. You could have gone otherwise or remain by yourselves, but you choose us to collaborate. Thank for trusting in our vision to deliver. By coming over you have honored a patriotic duty, and the CDC will make you comfortable in your new home,” he asserted.

Originally, the Coalition was made out of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), the former ruling National Patriotic Party (NPP) and the Liberia People Democratic Party (LPDP).

With the number totaling nine members, President Weah indicated that the CDC will be an indomitable force for October 10, adding that the Coalition will continue to build on existing alliances.

“I am optimistic that this will solidify our victory come October. The CDC is the party of the masses, a grass root movement that embodies the hope of the people, and this is why our government concentrates on the development of the people. Today, I am again, asking you for a second mandate to complete the progress that we have started,” the Liberian leader furthered.

“Let’s work together to move Liberia forward. No party is bigger than Liberia and this is why we want to unite and protect the generation to come,” President Weah told the cheering dominant Orange and Green crowd.

Meanwhile, Ambassador Dee Maxwell Saah Kemayah, the Political Leader of MOVEE, stated that the parties’ decision is in realization of the many tangibles delivered by this government since its inception.

“Our hope is to have one ‘kpan’ victory because of your enviable track record. I hope those that have not seen will be able to see at the end of Easter,” Amb. Kemayah pointed out.

“In one accord, we will continue to push your agenda, because we are testaments of your readiness to carry us through,” the Foreign Minister added.
