…Weah Tells Liberians
The Standard Bearer of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) Ambassador George M. Weah has told Liberians that there will be no witch hunt and discrimination under his administration.
Addressing thousands of partisans and supporters Wednesday at CDC headquarters in Congo Town, near Monrovia, Ambassador Weah said a CDC-led government would be inclusive; irrespective of political or tribal affiliations.
He told the jubilant crowd, who gathered at CDC headquarters upon his return from Nigeria that his administration will not engage in divisive acts.
Weah said the CDC has its own agenda that has nothing to do with the National Patriotic Party or former President Charles Taylor’s agenda.
He said claims that his administration will be influenced by former president Taylor are false and misleading.
Ambassador Weah also said news that the international community will not do business with a CDC-led government is far-fetched.
He said the international community is willing to work with anyone who becomes president irrespective of political party.
The CDC strongman also dismissed rumors that former president Taylor will be brought back to Liberia under his administration.
Ambassador Weah noted that he does not have the authority to bring Taylor back to Liberia as being claimed by his opponents.
Meanwhile, Ambassador Weah has lauded the National Elections Commission (NEC) for the October 10th polls, despite challenges that faced the process.
However, he called on the NEC to conduct free, fair and transparent election during the run-off without any fear or favor.
He said Liberians have been longing for peaceful transfer of power from one democratically elected government to another, as such, NEC must do all it can to have smooth transition.
Ambassador Weah believes that Liberians are anxious for change, which he said was proven during the first round of the elections.
Commenting on President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Weah said despite he has had some differences with the president, it will not make him to disrespect her, adding “I am a man of peace and will do nothing to undermine it.”
