Boakai To Name Karnga-Lawrence As Running Mate?

Grand Bassa County’s Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence says she will accept the position of running mate to Unity Party (UP’s) standard-bearer, Joseph Nyumah Boakai if she is chosen.

She told a news conference yesterday in Monrovia that her work in Grand Bassa County and that of her advocacy on women issues in the country speak volume to the extent that she will not refuse to be Boakai’s running mate.

Karnga-Lawrence could neither confirm nor deny the rumors that she is poised of being considered a running mate to Boakai following discussions in the corridors of the opposition bloc.  

Recently, Boakai told the media that the issue of naming a running mate in party’s politics is the personal decision of the standard-bearer and therefore needs no rush.

For sometimes now, there have been pressures on various opposition parties to name their running mates sooner than later because it will help to consolidate their positions with the votes.

However, Karnga-Lawrence and Musa Bility of the Liberty Party (LP) have been in a pulling-hauling battle over the leadership for almost 3 years now but any solution to the stalemate seems far-fetched.

Besides the governing Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) which is scheduled to re-name the same Weah and Taylor team, no opposition political party has named theirs in the pending Tuesday, October 10 of this year.
