REPRESENTATIVE YEKEH KOLUBAH RESIGNS FROM OPPOSITION ALTERNATIVE NATIONAL CONGRESS

Date:

LIBERIA – Representative Yekeh Kolubah has resigned as a member of the opposition Alternative National Congress (ANC). The Montserrado County District #10 lawmaker tendered his resignation today at a news conference in Monrovia.

Mr. Alexander B. Cummings is the standard-bearer of the Alternative National Congress.

Representative Kolubah, in a letter dated October 22, attributed his resignation to what he called the failure of the ANC to hold together with other opposition parties in the original Collaborating Political Parties (CPP).

The CPP then was an alliance of the four major opposition political parties comprising the Unity Party (UP), the All Liberian Party (UP), Liberty Party (LP), and the Alternative National Congress, for the sole purpose of amalgamating forces and resources for removal of President George Weah and his CDC government from power in the 2023 presidential elections.

The CPP experienced its strength as a result of the collaboration in the 2020 Special Senatorial Elections in which the majority of the seats were won by its candidates.

But the collaboration plunged into a series of internal wrangling shortly after that election. The internal wrangling ranged from allegations of tampering with the CPP Framework Document, the formation of blocs within the collaboration, and the allegations of blatant violation of the Framework Document and deviation from the principles of accountability.

The CPP is now comprised of two parties, the Alternative National Congress and Liberty Party.

However, during the press conference, the lawmaker didn’t state clearly which party he will be joining with barely 11 months to elections.
