CDC Power Struggle Deepens

first_imgEmbattled Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) national chairman George Solo has suspended three Executive Committee members of the party for time indefinite, worsening the existing “power struggle.”Some executive committee members early August 2014, expelled chairman Solo from his post for allegedly breaching the party’s guidelines.A communication to that effect was transmitted to the national electoral body—National Elections Commissions (NEC).Solo had since protested his removal before the Elections Commission, claiming that his colleagues’ action was against the party’s constitution. Pending an official ruling from the NEC, Solo issued a statement in Monrovia suspending Mulbah K. Morlu, vice chairman for operations, youth league chairman, Jefferson T. Koijii and deputy secretary general for administration, Samora P.Z. Wolokolie.According to Solo’s statement, “these individuals are suspended for time indefinite and they are expected to submit to the special investigative committee for investigation.”Solo’s statement continued, “The chairman has set up a six-man special investigative panel headed by its executive committee member Mike Doryen to probe them for grossly violating the party’s constitution.”In reaction to Solo’s assertions, Wolokolie said, “We consider that trash.”“I can’t respond to an embattled chairman,” Wolokolie concluded.For his part, Mulbah Morlu, vice chairman for operation declined to speak, adding; “That man is not chairman any longer.”However, Solo announced the suspension of all political activities of the CDC and asked all partisans to refrain from party activities related to gatherings as per health regulations and the “State of Emergency” until the party sees it necessary.Meanwhile, NEC failed to resolve CDC’s saga after several conferences with parties involved, forcing Commissioner Jonathan Weedor to revert to the Board of Commissioners for further investigation, NEC Spokesperson Joey Kennedy said.“Commissioner Weedor, who has direct oversight responsibility over CDC, could not resolve the matter and has asked that the matter be brought to the Board of Commissioners’ attention; so that will be communicated soon,” the NEC official said.According to party sources, Solo is currently before CDC Grievance Committee and the statement issued under his signature at the moment further cripples his chances of retaining his position as chairman.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
