Women Voices: We Oppose The Ongoing Dirty Politics
Monday 18th July 2011
The trend of Liberia’s political process is beginning to take new dimensions. Since the opening of official campaign, political parties have not done much in educating electorates on their platforms, but instead are spending time dwelling on personalities and making negative criticism of each other.

It can be recall that prior to the imposition of the so-called media blackout on the political Leader of the Movement for Progressive Change (MPC), Simeon Freeman and the Ministry of Information by the publishers, there where series of bitter exchange amongst the opposition, the Ministry of Information and the ruling Unity Party. At some point in time, one of the Deputy Ministers of Information branded Cllr. Jerome Verdier as a dog when he responded to comments made by Cllr. Verdier on the non-reelection of the president.

The Minister of Information himself when responding to the Simeon Freeman allegation that the Unity Party was master minders of his sex scandal urged Mr. Freeman to keep his zipper up when in fact the case was not adjudicate by a court of competent jurisdiction. We also watch Mr. Simeon Freeman and official of his Movement for Progressive Change branding the President as socially indiscipline, something which heavily reduced the piety of presidency.

It was also pitiful of comments emanating from Cllr. Charles Brumskine that the 2011 elections will not be free and fair when in fact we have not had the elections to see the level of in discrepancies that will characterize the process.
