CDC CAMPAIGN SPOKESMAN GBALA TAKES OPPOSITION ACTORS TO TASK FOR “RECKLESSLY PROMOTING VIOLENCE”

Date:

MONROVIA – The National Campaign Spokesman of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Cllr, Kanio Gba Gbala has taken some opposition figures in Liberia to task over what he calls the act of such individuals’ involvement into “recklessly promoting violence in the country.

Cllr. Gbala particularly termed as provocative and harmful, statements attributed to Unity Party standard bearer, former Vice President Joseph Boakai, and other opposition actors that Liberia will be eclipsed by war if there are election disputes following the conduct of Liberia’s impending presidential and legislative elections slated for next month.

The CDC Campaign Spokesman, who made these assertions today while speaking to over 200 members of The Concerned Thought Intellectual Forum in Montserrado County electoral District #17, stressed that it was very disturbing to see leading members of the opposition bloc peddling scare tactics and rallying their followers to violence instead of preaching democracy and the rule of law.

Cllr. Gbala emphasized that the governing CDC will transparently and democratically win the 10 October elections in the first round, indicating that any opposition actor questioning such results should utilize the courts as is customary in democratic settings.

He used the occasion to remind opposition actors of their responsibilities per the Farmington Declaration and the potential criminal liabilities that they could face in the event their statements he terms as being insightful, were to lead to violence.
