Some members of the National Patriotic Party (NPP) Bong County Chapter has distanced themselves from the recent primary conducted by the Coalition for Democratic Change CDC in the county.
The NPP Bong Chapter through its Secretary-General Amos D.S. Barbu Jr started in a press release that the chapter was not informed about the recent primary in the county.
Mr. Barbu said the Congress for Democratic Change is not respecting the coalition document signed in 2016.
He argued that the formation of the coalition clearly states in the addendum that, parties to the coalition which have seats in the Legislature (Representative and Senator), shall reserve the right of nomination to those seats, which has not been respected by the Congress for Democratic Change party.
The NPP executive also started that base on the violation of the agreement signed, Senator Dan Morias of Maryland County has filed a complaint to the National Elections Commission for interpretation and until such is done, there should be no primary in Bong and other Counties where the NPP has incumbent Senators.
Mr. Barbu said what was done in Gbarnga; Bong County on July 29, 2020, is a mere show of bluff and will be met with resistance if the actors don’t return to the status quo.
“The Bong chapter of the NPP emphatically states that it doesn’t recognize any stage-manage and illegal process as well as the outcome and will do all in its power to ensure that what it terms as their “BASE” is protected.
Meanwhile, the Coalition For Democratic Change has already unveiled members of their party who will represent them in the upcoming senatorial elections in December of this year.
