Cummings To Unveil 100-day Deliverables Soon

The Standard Bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), Alexander Cummings, says he will shortly unveil details of his first 100-day deliverables, attached with a special performance contract for Liberians to evaluate and hold him accountable for campaign promises made leading to his ascendancy as President come October 10.

Cummings reassured Liberians of his commitment to restoring good governance and instituting real change that will improve the socio-economic conditions of all Liberians irrespective of political affiliations or ethnicity.

He said unlike the administration of President George Weah, the CPP will guarantee every Liberian equal opportunity, right to free expressions and association with political party of choice, without any reprisals be it public officials or civil servants working in government.

The CPP Standard Bearer made the assertion when he spoke on the Truth FM Breakfast Show recently reiterating his commitment to a government of inclusion based solely on the merit system, with minimum of 30 percent female representation.

When asked about the CPP’s plans to restore good governance and revive the ailing economy, Cummings emphasized the need for a strong and independent Judiciary, respect for rule of law, combating corruption, and ensuring the streets are safe, all aimed at creating a friendly business environment to assure investors.

He said with his wealth of international experience in corporate governance and management of over US$200 billion budget, Liberia will definitely become a success story under a CPP Administration.

The CPP presidential hopeful said he will ensure regular payment of civil servants’ salaries, provide micro-loans for Liberians including market women to grow and expand their businesses, establish a National Youth Service and entrepreneurship programs, a rapid development of the eco-tourism and forestry sectors, as well as development of Liberia’s 350-mile beach way.

He said a CPP-led Government will also invest heavily in agriculture, all aimed at creating massive job opportunities for Liberians.
On his choice of a female running mate, Cummings said he is excited and very confident in the ability, qualifications, smartness and resilience of Counsellor Charlyne Brumskine, noting that they share the same value system and work ethic.

Cummings underscored the critical significance of women in decision making, and the need to involve women in all spheres of our national life, referring to women as the foundation of Liberia.
On the question of his stronghold and where he derives his confidence to win the Presidency, Cummings said women and youth constitute the bulk of his supporters and admirers, scattered nationwide and with Charlyne as running mate, Grand Bassa County has become a CPP stronghold.

He expressed confidence of taking over from Mr. Weah, whose nearly six years leadership has proven to be disastrous, with rising cost of living, hardship, growing insecurity, lawlessness, extrajudicial killings and mysterious murders and deaths.

Cummings said the arbitrary reduction of civil servants’ salaries, high unemployment rate, devaluation of the country’s currency, backlogs of salary arrears owed civil servants, massive corruption, and wasteful spending have largely contributed to the deteriorating economic conditions nationwide.

The CPP Standard Bearer assured Liberians that he has the capacity, competence and connections to successfully lead the process of economic renewal, restore basic social services and get Liberians back to work as well as get Liberians to play active role in their own economy.
