Leaders of twelve political parties in Liberia who met in Ganta, Nimba County recently, signed a communiqué agreeing to work together and collaborate in order to obtain victory in the ensuing 2017 Presidential and Legislative elections.
Appearing as guest on the Capitol FM Breakfast show, Parjibo mentioned that success is only certain in the 2017 polls when parties come together.
“In order to score success in the 2017 elections, political parties must amalgamate forces,” Parjibo stated.
He maintained that “the Ganta gathering in terms of political amalgamation must be supported by all because that is the way to the future”.
Commenting on expected outcome in the 2017 polls, Parjibo said “we are going to have an election that is issue based and where the voters become the judge”.
“We expect that these elections will be of ideas and not personality”, he said.
The two-day gathering brought together Senator Prince Y. Johnson of the Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction (MDR), Liberty Party's Charles Walker Brumskine, Benoni Urey of the All Liberian Party ALP, George Weah of the Congress for Democratic Change and Alexander Cummings of Alternative National Congress (ANC).
Other parties include the former ruling National Patriotic Party (NPP), Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE), Movement for Progressive Change, All Liberia Coalition Party, Victory for Change Party, New Liberia Party, Vision for Liberia Transformation, Union of Liberian Democrats and the Liberian Nation Union.
