-Aggrieved Partisans Claimed
Some aggrieved members of the Movement for Progressive Change (MPC) claimed that the party has violated the country`s New Elections Law. They cited numerous flaws in 5.8 of the New Elections Law that seeks to guide political parties and independent candidates.

During the start of the MPC two-day convention at the Baptist Seminary, Sections A and B of the National Elections Commission (NEC) regulations which state amongst other things that “a political party seeking to participate in an election for public office must first conduct conventions or primaries for purpose of electing its list of nominee (s) that will be submitted to the commission to contest on the party’s ticket, something aggrieved partisans claimed were allegedly violated by the party.”
The regulations further state that “all eligible members of the party must be given equal opportunity to participate in said conventions or primaries in accordance with the party rules that are not in conflict with the constitution of the Republic of Liberia.
But, speaking to this paper, delegates attending the second national convention of the party cited that such were never done.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Augustine Kimba claimed that the party violated Section B of the new election regulations that state that “a political party shall notify the commission in writing no later than 14 days to the date of holding its convention.
The notice, which the party must deliver to the commissioners’ headquarters, shall include the following: the date, time, and location of the convention or primary including the names of persons that will be contesting to win the party’s nomination, along with the elective position (s) to be sought amongst others.
He is thereby recommending to the National Elections Commission not to recognize those coming out of the convention as national leaders and standard-bearer of the party.
“Do not give any nomination package to anyone claiming to be an official of the MPC,” he warned. Kimba maintained that the case is currently before the hearing office of NEC pending investigation.
