Liberia: Congress for Democratic Change Rallying Opposition Forces to Plot 2029 Comeback

Must read

Liberia main opposition Congress for Democratic Change has commenced conversation regarding a reinforced coalition that will challenge the governing Unity Party for the presidency in 2029.

New alliances will be built to make the party formidable going forward, CDC National Chairman Mulbah Morlu said. A retreat session has been planned for this April and to layout the blue print for an expanded coalition,

“Amid Liberia’s annoying Boakai problem, and the different analysis of the challenges that led to his cold-hearted presidency, as a party – it is time to rise above blame-shifting, by coming back together quickly, strengthening and expanding existing alliances, and rising to the occasion to hold the regime accountable.

“Simultaneously, we can achieve this feat while rebuilding the mighty Coalition for Democratic Change and its collaborating institutions as Liberia’s ark of redemption.

“As we begin internal discussions with member parties aimed at reactivating the Coalition for Democratic Change’s framework agreement, the CDC takes this opportunity to thank all member parties, partisans, supporters and sympathizers for the unwavering support, dedication, and commitment to our revolutionary ideals, political doctrine, and grassroots principles. “

Full statement

CDC Announces ‘COMEBACK RETREAT’ 2024

(Theme: ‘TURNING SETBACKS INTO COMEBACK’)

Fellow partisans,

On behalf of the Standard-bearer, H.E. (former) President George M. Weah and the National Executive Committee of the Coalition for Democratic Change, I extend profound appreciation to all of our people for being courageous in the face of adversity, especially as we begin to painfully witness the virtues of good leadership (once upheld by the CDC-led government) trampled underfoot by the initial greed, misjudgments and betrayal of trust of the already failing Boakai regime.

Even though it’s still too early to draw final conclusions, but the adage ‘You will know from the eve, if your Christmas will be good’, serves notice to patriotic Liberians to forge unity around the CDC as the most viable grassroots democratic instrument of REDEMPTION.

In the face of his shameful, embarrassing and dehumanizing treatment meted out against his own people—unity party leaders, militants and foot soldiers who are sadly treated like ‘Plantation workers’ that labored only to supply the table of distant masters—Mr. Boakai’s insensitivity towards the needs of ordinary people and his easy compromise of the truth, risks sliding Liberia down a rapid moral and structural slippery slope.

Subsequently, our country is now faced with a new level of fear and anxiety that leaves many doubting what tomorrow brings.

Amid Liberia’s annoying Boakai problem, and the different analysis of the challenges that led to his cold-hearted presidency, as a party – it is time to rise above blame-shifting, by coming back together quickly, strengthening and expanding existing alliances, and rising to the occasion to hold the regime accountable.

Simultaneously, we can achieve this feat while rebuilding the mighty Coalition for Democratic Change and its collaborating institutions as LIBERIA’S ARK OF REDEMPTION.

As we begin internal discussions with member parties aimed at reactivating the Coalition for Democratic Change’s framework agreement, the CDC takes this opportunity to thank all member parties, partisans, supporters and sympathizers for the unwavering support, dedication, and commitment to our revolutionary ideals, political doctrine, and grassroots principles.

Upholding these cherished democratic values even in the face of unfolding challenges, CDCians are encouraged to continue to preserve the badge of discipline and honor, building the courage to confront the brutal facts of initial bad governance with optimism.

The truth cannot be denied that the CDC, when kept focused and fully united, remains the most significant democratic grassroots political instrument of change in Liberia.

And while we celebrate achieved victories of both past and present, we are nonetheless cognizant of the deep challenges ahead of us, and in this regard have engaged in broad-based consultations from all levels of our party.

Henceforth, we are pleased to announce that our party, the Mighty Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) will hold a CDC COMEBACK Retreat, scheduled to commence from April 24th to 29th, 2024, in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County; under the theme-

‘TURNING SETBACKS INTO COMEBACK’

This retreat will elevate an essential institutional platform to move forward in Unity, Strength and Renewed Momentum.

Additionally, it will also provide the space for constructive dialogue that resolves internal differences, and to promote unity and solidarity within our ranks.

Fellow partisans, our crucial governing challenges as a country make it imperative that we stand together as a cohesive force, united by a common purpose and vision for a better nation for all.

Furthermore, this ‘CDC COMEBACK Retreat 2024’ will provide us with an opportunity to develop strategies that will serve as our roadmap towards the year 2029, which is already being widely considered as The CDC COMEBACK year!

As the National Chairman of our Revolutionary Party, I want to emphasize that this retreat will not be a one-way street, but a people-driven platform that will value your input, suggestions, and ideas. We recognize that the strength of our party lies in the diversity of perspectives and experiences within our ranks.

Therefore, I encourage each and every CDCian to actively but constructively contribute to these pending discussions and deliberations that will shape our future.

In addition to developing strategies, we will also seek your valuable insights in formulating national policy responses that resonate with the aspirations and needs of the Liberian people.

By engaging in open and constructive dialogue, we can strengthen our party’s position and ensure that our actions are rooted in the interests of all citizens.

I am confident that this retreat will not only strengthen our party but also invigorate the collective spirit and determination of our Blue Revolution.

Together, we can overcome any obstacle and forge a path towards a brighter, more inclusive, and prosperous future for our nation.

Subsequently, my office in consultation with the CDC National Executive Committee, has constituted various committees that will shoulder the responsibility of taking us to the retreat; and I hereby ask each and every one of you to work with these committees in order to have a successfully retreat.

Once again, I extend my warmest gratitude to you at home and abroad for defending and holding steady the battle lines of the party.

In the coming months and years, there will certainly be attempts by unscrupulous elements of this failing government to engage in a multipronged and multi-actor effort to actively hinder the unstoppable rise of the CDC. They will try, but will never succeed; so fear not.

While our primary mission maintains a guided focus of reasserting the mighty CDC’s national political dominance, be assured that not many understand opposition politics like we do.

To the glory of God, backed by partisans’ support, we led and survived here during previous opposition years: hence we are familiar with the actors and know how to contain and hold them accountable when wrongs are committed.

As we look ahead, it is crucial that we analyze the political landscape, adapt to changing dynamics, and identify the most effective approaches to achieve our goals.

By harnessing the collective wisdom and expertise of all partisans, and ensuring that our party remains at the forefront of positivity, we will most assuredly prevail.

And as we prepare for this very important season of institutional renewal, may the period bring us together, reinforcing the bonds that unite us as partisans of the Mighty Coalition for Democratic Change-CDC.

With utmost gratitude and anticipation for a more vibrant and robust CDC, we remain STRONGER TOGETHER!

Thanks once again.

God bless the CDC.

Signed:

Mulbah K. Morlu, Jr.
