SENATOR NYONBLEE KARNGA-LAWRENCE ENDORSES BOAKAI-KOUNG TICKET 

Date:

MONROVIA – The political leader of Liberty Party and Grand Bassa County Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence has officially endorsed Unity Party’s standard-bearer, Joseph N. Boakai, and his vice running-mate, Jeremiah Koung presidential ticket ahead of the October 10, 2023, presidential and legislative elections.

The endorsement ceremony was held today in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, and brought together supporters of the Unity Party, the Movement for Democratic Reconstruction (MDR), and the Liberty Party.

The Baokai-Koung ticket appears to be the favorite presidential ticket for the upcoming presidential election ahead of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) footballing President, George M. Weah, and former Coca-cola Executive and standard-bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), Alexander B. Cummings.

Senator Karnga-Lawrence, who was overlooked to go as vice running mate to Amb. Boakai in favor of Senator Jeremiah K. Koung, expressed the Liberty Party’s willingness to support the Boakai-Koung ticket…

It can be recalled, there were claims and counterclaims as to who Grand Bassa County Senator Karnga-Lawrence will support.

Sen. Karnga-Lawrence posted on her official Facebook Page saying, “As leaders, we are open to talking with everyone in public or privately, as we have always done”.

She furthered: ”Under the prevailing circumstances, our decision will be guided by our principles and vision in the best interest of our country. We will speak out soon”.

The LP political leader posted after several other political groups including Alexander B. Cummings of the Alternative National Congress, Unity Party Joseph Nyuma Boakai Sr., and others allegedly reached out to her to capture her support.

It is also in the public that ex-president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf allegedly held a closed-door meeting with Sen. Abe Darius Dillon and Sen. Lawrence a meeting others claim was met to encourage them to support Alexander Cummings.

Supporters of Sen. Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence have continuously posted that Amb. Joseph N. Boakai did not promise Sen. Lawrence a running mate post, adding that Sen. Karnga-Lawrence too didn’t promise Amb. Joseph Boakai her support.

  1. Hahaha. Boakai cannot be rescued from his PYJ choice. PYJ may be good for Nimba, but he’s a deadweight for national elections. Boakai will learn that after during the ballot count on 10 October 2023. For now let him continue his daydream. Day will break soon.
