Confidential report reaching this paper from the camp of Senator Prince Y. Johnson, aliased PYJ, of the Movement for Democracy and Reconciliation (MDR) has uncapped an deal being discussed to bring him and the Political leader of the All Liberian Party (ALP), Benoni Urey into political matrimony.

PYJ again NRIt is revealed that two presidential aspirants in the opposition bloc are in discussion to settle on the deal to enable them collaborate in the coming October polls. The report says Mr. Benoni Urey of the All Liberian Party and Senator Prince Y. Johnson of the Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction (MDR) have been discussing for more than a year now.

Though details of the deal remain unclear, sources close to the Nimba County Senator said the discussion is still ongoing as both individuals representing two political institutions are preparing for the upcoming general and presidential election in October of this year.

Businessman Benoni Urey and Senator Prince Johnson, who formerly headed the defunct Independent National Patriotic Front of Liberia, have both one way or another worked with former President Charles Taylor, now convicted for aiding and abetting war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sierra Leone and is serving a 50-year sentence in Great Britain.

Urey’s ALP was one of several parties that committed themselves to the Ganta Pact arranged by Senator Johnson for parties to come together in unison against the ruling Unity Party.

The Ganta PACT did not materialize as a result of political differences mainly bordering on parties’ intransigence not to go second to other parties. Observers are concerned how the two men who by far have varying political philosophies will jell together.

Urey is seen as a no-nonsense character who does not have the political clout while Johnson is also an uncompromising character who cannot also be trusted. He is known for walking away from several arrangements including his breakaway from the National Patriotic of Liberia (NPFL) to form the Independent National Patriotic Front of Liberia (INPFL).

Sources in Urey`s party has also confirmed the collaboration between the two political institutions. PYJ broke away from Charles Taylor and formed the INPFL and Urey worked with Taylor as close associate and later became the head of Maritime. PYJ and Urey are not strange to each other. Both men attended the same grade school years ago, according to Urey.
