“As the CDC endeavors to fulfill its obligation of holding free, fair and democratic primaries within the framework of its national constitution, the coalition agreement, as well as the election laws of Liberia for the purpose of ensuring a credible process. We are pleased to announce the primaries steering committee and the guidelines,” Kowo announced.

He indicated that this process and committee are only internal to the Congress for Democratic Change and not the Coalition for Democratic Change. Kowo clarified that this is so because according to him article 7(g) of the coalition`s agreement states among other things that parties to the coalition which have seats in the legislature shall reserve the right of nomination to those seats.

Those named on the CDC primaries election committee are CDC youth league chair, Jefferson Koijee, Ronald K. Mendscole, Hassan Newland and Mamensie Kaba among others, as chairman, co-chairman, secretary general and member respectively.

Those named on the primary steering committee are CDC secretary general, Janga Kowo, James Forkpah, Emmanuel Swen, D. Ansu Sonii and Mohammed Jalloh, as chairman, co-chairman, secretary, advisor and support staff respectively.

The CDC secretary general and head of its steering committee disclosed that there shall be 45 voting delegates per district in the party’s upcoming convention, thus, 15 from district executive, 15 from district women league and 15 from district youth league.

At the same time, Kowo revealed that the upcoming CDC primaries are expected to begin on May 27, 2017 in Grand Bass County and ends on June 14, 2017 in Montserrado County.

However, Kowo warned that no member of the CDC who has already registered as an independent candidate would be allowed to contest the party’s primaries, describing the act as a dubious scenario.
