MONROVIA: Remarking as the official launcher of the Liberia People Democratic Party (LPDP) Bio-metric Voter’s Registration (BVR) awareness campaign, Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor has cautioned Liberians from all walks of life to detest the temptation of engaging election violence.
LPDP is a constituent member of the current ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) led administration.

The Coalition for Democratic Change was birthed in early 2016 out of tripartite arrangement involving the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) of then Montserrado County Senator now President George Manneh Weah, the Liberia People Democratic Party of former House Speaker J, Alex Taylor and the National Patriotic Party (NPP) of Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor.

The program was graced by stalwarts of the three parties which include LPDP’s National Chairman, Moses Y. Kollie, Mulbah Morlu, National Chairman of the CDC, and Chief Cyril Allen of the CDC Governing Council amongst several others.

Speaker to a gigantic crowd of mostly young people who have gathered at the LPDP’s National Headquarters situated in Oldest Congo Town to witness the launch of the BVR consciousness drive, Vice President Taylor urged Liberians especially young people to do away with all acts that have the proclivity to spark violence.

She encourage Liberians to exhibit the posture of maturity and calmness as the country gradual approach the much-crucial October 10, 2023 Presidential and Legislative Elections.
“Please do not allow people to use you to bring violence in our elections, don’t be used to bring violence to your community,” VP Taylor asserted.

According to Madam Taylor, the Government of Liberia (GoL) under the leadership of President Weah is fully committed to the conduct of violence free, fair and transparent elections come the second Tuesday November 2023.

In a drive to showcase the government’s commitment for a violence free electoral process, VP Taylor added that President Weah will on this Tuesday, April 4, 2023 joined other political party leaders at the Farmington Hotel to sign a Peace Pact committing the government to a peaceful election process.

The Vice President also boasted and expressed confidence that the CDC will win the outcoming election on the first ballot, “You do not have to fight us we are winning anyway in the first round,” she vowed.
Speaking earlier, CDC National Chairman Mulbah Morlu pointed out that the only visible threat to the reelection bid of President Weah remained partisans, well-wishers and sympathizers of the government who will fail to acquire voting cards.

According to Morlu, a combined opposition community poses no direct risk to President Weah’s quest for a second shot at the Executive Mansion on such basis; he entreated those he referred to as President Weah admirers to endure the tension of the long queue to obtain their voting card.

In similar tone like Vice President Taylor, Chairman Morlu who branded the opposition community as “weak” noted that the current configuration of the opposition cannot be a stumbling block to President Weah’s pursuit for a second term in office.

For his part, Cyril Allen, head of the party’s Governing Council said CDC path to victory at the upcoming October 10, 2023 polls is clearer with the collaboration of six other political parties.
Cyril Allen disclosed that with coming on board of the six political parties CDC is destined to win the election on the first ballot.
