The main opposition Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) has called off a planned protest scheduled for today on the grounds of the Capitol Building, the seat of the National Legislature.
The protest was canceled Sunday during a press conference at the headquarters of the CDC in Congo Town. Officials of the party said the protest was canceled to allow the due process to take course.
Last week, senatorial candidate Ambassador George Weah said he would gather thousands of supporters of the party on the grounds of the National Legislature to protest against the president's action.
However, on Sunday, December 7, the party announced that it planned protest against President Sirleaf's Executive Order had been called off and supporters have been requested to stay away.
