The Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction says it is working with all opposition political parties including the unity Party, Alternative National Congress, and the Economic Freedom Fighters of Liberia for a possible collaboration ahead of the October elections this year.
The immediate former political leader of the MDR, Senator Prince Johnson told the Voice of America Daybreak Africa program that he is opting to field a candidate in the elections but collaborating with other political parties is possible.
Senator Johnson, who is widely considered Nimba county’s “Political Godfather” recently withdrew his political party’s support from the ruling CDC, accusing the government of doing nothing for the people of his country.
Senator Johnson said the failure of the government to bring jobs for young people is one of the best reasons for the withdrawal of his support from the CDC.
Meanwhile, Senator Johnson has disclosed that the Top CDC Executives and Government officials visited him last week to ask him for his support, a request, he said, was turned down.
He named the CDC Executives and Government officials who had gone to plead with him as CDC Chairman Mulbah Morlue, Former Minister Nathaniel McGill, Foreign Affairs Minister, Dee-Maxwell Kemeyah, Maritime Commissioner, Eugene Nagbe, and the Minister of Finance Samuel Tweah.
