The Ruling Coalition For Democratic Change (CDC) has Congratulated Abu Kamara & Abraham Darius Dillion Representative elect of District 15 and Senator elect of Montserrado County resp ectively.
We again want to appreciate all Liberians, especially our partisans and supporters for braving the storm to participate in these by-elections. We especially want to thank the gallant men and women of District 15 for coming out en masse to cast their votes. We fought a good fight and have reached a final conclusion, in the aftermath of the National Elections Commission official announcement of preliminary results, which projects Abu B. Kamara as winner of District #15. Whilst congratulating Mr. Kamara, the CDC as Liberia’s biggest democratic institution, likewise congratulates Mr. Abraham Darius Dillion of the Liberty Party as the presumptive winner of the Senatorial Elections of Montserrado County. Our dynamic Standard Bearer and supporters, we the members of the National Executive Committee of this great party are committed to all of you. Now is the time that we have to swallow the bitter pills by taking some hard decisions both in government and our party. We commit to continuously seeking the interest of Liberians. Most importantly, our supporters who stood with us during our difficult days in the struggle must continue to be empowered. We can no longer sugarcoat this reality. The moral demands to empower our people is a fierce urgency that remains our first line of defense as we serve our country. The verdict from our people in the just-ended polls in Montserrado is not only a wakeup call to action, but an insistence the party will not ignore to change course. Our officials in both the Legislature and the Executive will have to live in accordance with our Pro-Poor Agenda or, they will have to vacate the government and our beloved party. We have reached the point where we will separate party actions from the actions of officials of government, where necessary; the period for honeymoon is over. The mandates given to you are for support and execution to help our President succeed, not to undermine our hard-earned gains. Our officials must validate the confidence reposed in them. Our President is a popular person with a good heart for all Liberians. We all have to help our leader deliver for the people of Liberia. This election does not mean that our government is unpopular with the people of Liberia. What it means is that our partisans and the people of Liberia in general need us most at this critical juncture in our national political journey. My fellow partisans, we are emerging stronger than ever in our political history, and with this increasing strength we shall never repeat a loss in our stronghold of Montserrado County again. In conclusion, we hereby announce an extraordinary meeting of the entire party structure on this Saturday, August 3, 2019 at 4:00 PM to build consensus with partisans and stakeholders as we work overtime to remain a united and stronger party towards 2020, when the mighty party looks to redeeming Montserrado’s lost seat and gaining additional Senatorial seats. Let us remain united.
