ANC’s Alexander Cummings Expresses disappointment in the Chairman of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), Amb. Joseph N. Boakai.
Monrovia, Liberia. 13 November 2021 – Mr. Alexander Cummings is disappointed that the Chairman of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), Amb. Joseph N. Boakai is using his medical visit to the United States to paint the CPP as having problems with its Framework Agreement (FA).
This FA, which is the instrument that binds the four parties, has been in existence for more than a year and has been repeatedly used to determine how the CPP functions and operated in many previous elections. After more than a year, it says a lot about the leadership capacities of anyone claiming alleged alteration.
Despite pointing to the Framework Agreement as being the source of the CPP problems, it is yet to be established what was “dubiously, viciously, and purposefully altered allegedly by some nefarious individuals within the hierarchy of the CPP – and replaced by “Alien Clauses” to engender ulterior motives” as charged by Mr. Urey on August 18, 2021. Of course, neither Ambassador Boakai, Senator Karnga-Lawrence, nor Mr. Urey can point to these alleged alterations in the FA to which they are in disagreement or that benefit the ANC while disadvantaging other member-parties. Their alteration talking point is a conspiratorial smokescreen which they believe by repeating long enough, the falsehood will somehow become truthful.
The stubborn truth remains that the amended version of the Framework Agreement, presented by the lawyers and approved by the parties, is materially, provisionally, and substantially the same as the one filed with the National Elections Commission. And this is a fact!
Therefore, it is disingenuous for Ambassador Boakai to be calling for reconciliation, and at the same time, continue as his predecessor did, to throw around accusations he has reasons to know are patently false, as he and his co-conspirators have tried and failed to prove otherwise.
The CPP does, however, have a problem. The real problem is not with the Framework Agreement. It is in the ambitions of so-called leaders who would like to pursue their personal ambitions through means other than the democratic primaries agreed to by all the parties.
Ambassador Boakai knows he will lose to the Candidate of REAL CHANGE, Mr. Alexander Cummings, in a CPP Democratic Primary as provided for in the Framework Agreement. As a result, he (Boakai) is conspiring with others to circumvent the holding of democratic primaries even at the expense of undermining the unity of the CPP, including beclouding it with public doubts and risking the desire of the Liberian people to make President Weah a one-term President. This is without honor and shameful to the core.
Two facts are not lost on the Liberian people. The first is that President Weah is a total failure. He is incompetent and misleading Liberia into backwardness, and Liberians into worsening economic conditions. The second fact is that there is only one REAL CHANGE candidate with the pedigree, track record, and clean hands to turn things around for the better. That candidate is Mr. Alexander B. Cummings who is unencumbered by corruption and Liberia’s history of misrule
