NPP WITHDRAWS FROM GEORGE WEAH’S CDC COALITION AMID GROWING DISCONTENT

Date:

MONROVIA – The National Patriotic Party (NPP) has officially withdrawn from the former ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) led by George Weah. This significant development marks a major setback for the embattled coalition just six months after its ousting from power.

NPP National Chairman Atty. George Mulbah announced the decision on Monday, attributing it to widespread dissatisfaction among party members. The withdrawal follows a decisive vote by the NPP’s Executive Committee on June 9, 2024, where 40 out of 52 members supported the resolution to exit the coalition. This move aligns with Article 11, Section 2 of the Coalition agreement, reaffirmed as recently as 2023.

Key factors in the NPP’s decision were grievances from grassroots members over unfavorable conditions and ill-treatment during the coalition’s tenure. Despite the departure, Mulbah emphasized that the NPP remains open to engaging with former coalition partners on an individual basis.

The NPP’s exit compounds the CDC’s mounting troubles, exacerbated by recent resignations of key figures such as former Chairman Mulbah Morlu and former Executive member Dr. Lester Tenny. These defections highlight the internal strife and declining influence of the CDC in Liberia’s political arena.

The NPP intends to notify the National Elections Commission of its reestablished status as an independent political entity, committed to operating within Liberia’s electoral framework. This move underscores the CDC’s continuing struggles to maintain unity and authority in the wake of their electoral defeat.
