The decision by the Congress for Democratic Change to boycott the presidential run-off elections slated for November 8, 2011 signals a sad day for Liberia.
In the position statement issued by the CDC Wednesday, October 26, copy of which is in this paper’s possession, the party cited what it called Chairman Fromayan’s pro- partisan role for the ruling Unity Party.
CDC said Fromayan has been biased, reckless and unruly in his actions and utterances against their membership, but failed to cite specific instances.
The statement issued under the signature of CDC’s Secretary General Acarous Gray, who accused the NEC of being double standard by way of its referee rile, at the same time a player role, thus serving as a mouthpiece of the ruling UP.
In as much as the CDC feels aggrieved in these elections, it cannot hold the rest of Liberia hostage by attempting to stall the democratic process through the announcement of a boycott without exhausting all legal avenues provided for under the Liberian constitution.
