MONROVIA: In consonance with Liberian laws, Presidential and Legislative Elections are held every six years.

The last elections were held in 2017; meaning that in this year (2023), Presidential and Legislative Elections are legally binding to take place.

For the conduct of these elections, the country’s electoral body, c), on Saturday, August 5, 2023, declared national campaign opened for political parties, coalitions and independent candidates.

They are to Canvass for various elective public offices.

Since the declaration was made by the NEC, in line with its revised electoral calendar, campaign activities have taken center stage across the country.

As part of activities to boost its campaign for the reelection of current Liberian President, George Manneh Weah, the Liberia People Democratic Party (LPDP)–a founding member of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), on Saturday, August 11, 2023, launched its Auxiliaries’ Network at its National Headquarters in Oldest Congo Town.

The Network, according to party officials, comprises 150 different groups. The colorful event was graced by officials of the CDC and other party stalwarts.

Speaking at the opening of the program, the head of the LPDP Auxiliaries’ Network, Miss Jewel Freeman said, they decided to form the auxiliary groups to ensure the reelection of President George Weah.

“Most members of these different auxiliaries are first-time voters. We decided to come together to ensure the reelection of President Weah because of the numerous contributions his administration has made towards youth empowerment.

“For the first time in our country’s history, President Weah has alleviated the burdens our parents had in paying our WASSCE fees. He didn’t only stop there; he has also ensured that the state-run University of Liberia (UL) and all other public universities and colleges are tuition-free”, she averred.

Miss Freeman concluded her assertion by calling on CDC National Campaign Manager, Lenn Eugene Nagbe, to lend them all of the support required to enhance their campaign activities for the reelection of the Liberian Leader.

“We want to use this medium to call on National Campaign Manager, Hon. Eugene Nagbe to look our way in ensuring that we get all of the support we need to run this campaign,” she appealed.

Also making brief remarks at the occasion, the LPDP’s National Vice Chair for Administration, Fred Lamadine, who is also the Campaign Chair of the party, encouraged electorate to vote #18 on Election Day (October 10, 2023).

He told the gathering that the overall objective of uniting the party’s auxiliaries under a network is to recruit more voters for the reelection bid of President Weah.

For his part, the Acting National Chair of the LPDP, D. Wa Hne, Jr. started by underlining factors that have impeded the development of the country since 1847.

He named segregation, greed, marginalization and un-patriotism as some of the factors that have undermined the development of the country in the past.

“Please be serious about knowing what you want during these elections. Do not allow people to make decisions for you. Make your own wise decisions in the best interest of the country and your very selves. I have been around for some time now. I was a child during President William V. S. Tubman’s administration; I was a small boy during President William R. Tolbert, Jr.’s administration; I was a youth during President Samuel K. Doe’s regime and became a full grown man during President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s government. I mean, I have seen a lot. Since 1847, no President had done what H.E. Dr. Dr. George Manneh Weah has done in relatively a short period. Today, roads are being paved all over the country; we as parents, guardians and sponsors are no longer worried about paying our children’s WASSCE fees; college enrollment of young high school graduates has quadrupled because of the President’s free-tuition policy; modern hospitals are being built in strategic locations across the country; recreational facilities that were nonexistent over the years can now been seen all over the place. Do not allow anyone to fool you; vote #18 because George Weah is the original fixer and rescuer; all the other ones are fake”, he told the attendees at the launch.

In remark, at the ceremony, current Executive Director of the National Identification Registry (NIR), who is also Secretary General of the National Patriotic Party (NPP) and also Deputy Campaign Manager of the CDC for Interparty Affairs, Andrew Peters, characterized President Weah as the “Abraham Lincoln of Liberia”. According to him, former US President Lincoln went to the American Presidency with an objective and that was to ensure that slavery and all forms of racial discrimination were abolished.

So is President Weah. “President Weah is the Abraham Lincoln of Liberia, he added.

Just as he went to the American Presidency with the specific objective of ending slavery and all forms of racial discrimination, President Weah is committed to unifying the country.

“Weah decided to go to the Liberian Presidency to end all forms of segregation and marginalization and to accelerate the development of the country for all, irrespective of societal status. In the past, before you work in government, you had to serve as a cadet for some time, but President Weah has put a stop to that practice. Young men and women from the slums are being given the opportunity to become senior officials of government without serving as cadets. This was only made possible under President Weah. Do not vote for old car. Joseph Boakai is an old car, while President Weah is a new car. Do not vote for the opposition because they have nothing to offer. Look at the tangibles out there and allow these development initiatives to continue by voting Dr. George Manneh Weah and Dr. Chief Jewel Howard-Taylor on #18 on October 10 of this year. Vote for Youth empowerment! Vote for free education! Vote for nationwide road connectivity! Vote for more state-of-the-art hospitals! Vote for the real development champions”, he rested his voice.
