“We will come out in June and will not leave until President Weah does what he’s supposed to do” Four opposition collaborating parties warn..


Monrovia, Liberia—Four opposition collaborating political parties have officially declared their involvement and participation in the up-coming June 7 Protest. The demonstration is being organized by a group calling itself Council of Patriots. The four parties, including the All Liberian Party, Alternative National Congress, Liberty Party and former ruling Unity Party said, they are joining the protest to save Liberia from collapse under President Weah. The group at a news conference promised the holding of a peaceful assembly to claim the attention of President Weah on several issues of national priority. The opposition parties also assured the International community and Liberians that the demonstration is not meant to unseat the President as allegedly claimed by some political figures across the Country. Former ruling Unity Party National Chairman Wilmot Paye is quoted as saying, “We will come out in June and will not leave until the President does what he’s required to do”. He told Journalists that the four parties will mobilize resources and man power from across the 15 Counties to join them beginning June. The declaration comes barely 24 hours after “All Liberia Party (ALP) Political” Leader Benoni Urey pledged his support and vowed to be in the full front of said gathering on June 7. “I will be in the full front of that Demonstration on June 7”, says Mr. Urey in an Exclusive interview with KMTV. He said bad governance has reached an alarming rate that needs the intervention of the people. Mr Urey meanwhile threatened to verbally attack President Weah if CDC Chairman Mulbah Morlu continues to launch stinking attacks on them. Mr Morlu in recent times, has accused several politicians including Benoni Urey, Senator Oscar Cooper, Representative Yekeh Kolubah, Senator Sando Johnson amongst others of directly and indirect participating in the Liberian Civil crisis that led to the killing of over 250,000 people. The ALP Political Leader made these comments in an interview with this station on Tuesday.
