Monrovia, Liberia-Ruling Party, Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) has declined from feeding any candidate in the upcoming Grand Cape Mount senatorial by-election.
The vacancy was created as a result of the demise of Senator Edward B. Dagosseh of that County.
Addressing a news conference over the weekend, CDC Chairman Mulbah K. Morlu, explained, the part’s decision is based on their recent experience in the just-ended Montserrado Senatorial by-election which saw the ascendancy of Abraham Darius Dillon of Liberty Party as Senator, replacing late Senator Geraldine Doe-Sheriff.
Morlu told a news conference, the National Executive Committee of the CDC has launched a three-month recovery process to seek answers to their performance in Montserrado.
The 15-man Strategic Recovery Committee (SRC), expected to be headed by former CDC USA-based Chairman will be charged with the responsibility to conduct a nationwide investigative analysis on the poor performance of the party in Montserrado.
“The process is also aimed at establishing a fundamental basis for building consensus, sampling views that will impact the mid-term elections in 2020 and to advert the recurrence of a CDC defeat in what is supposed to their political stronghold”, says Morlu.
“It would not be prudent while we are analyzing our governance evaluation process, to run into election”, Morlu noted.
