NPP Reaffirms Commitment To Coalition

By Precious D. Freeman
The National Patriotic Party (NPP) has reaffirmed its commitment to the Coalition document signed in 2016 which was slated for review in 2020 thereby pledging unwavering support to the Weah-led Government.
On November 2, 2016, the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), the Liberian People’s Democratic Party (LPDP) and the NPP, through a governance structure, entered into a six-year agreement which runs from Nov. 2, 2016 to Nov. 2, 2022 thereby forming a Coalition named and styled, “Coalition for Democratic Change.”
The Agreement provides for a collective and inclusive governance of the country in line with the Constitution and other statutes as well as the adoption of sound policies that guarantee the rights of the Liberian people and as well improve their living standards.
In a press conference held at the NPP headquarters yesterday, its National Secretary General, Andrew Peters, stated that the leaders of the three constituent parties cognizant of the ramifications should this government not perform satisfactorily, have a responsibility to ensure that qualified and competent Liberians especially members within the Coalition are included at every facet of the government.
“Those members of the three parties have more zest to ensure that this government succeeds because they are the ones being held liable for the commitments they have made to improve the lives of the Liberian people” he said.
He mentioned that they have acknowledged that the Coalition has made major developmental strides over the three-year period of governance and are also cognizant that this government was overwhelming elected in terms of development and for the improvement of the lives of the Liberian people.
However, what remains sticky about this recommitment is that the standard bearer of the NPP did not affix her signature on the said resolution making political pundits to wonder if the decision is authentic and can be sustained for the Coalition’s 2023 reelection bid. See Resolution on Page 3
