The aspirants will represent or defend their party’s emblem if qualified by the National Elections Commission (NEC) in what is believed would be a tension-pack race. The 2020 Special Senatorial Election, which is in line with Article 77 (b) of the Liberian Constitution, is scheduled for December 2020. According to the CDC’s listing, Montserrado County Electoral District #5 Representative, Thomas F. Fallah will contest the seat for Montserrado County, while Milton Gbezohngar Findley will represent the party for Grand Bassa County.
Rep. Fallah won the party’s primary after accumulating the highest votes following counts and tallies of all results of all primaries across the 17 electoral districts of the county. For former Foreign Minister Findley, he was endorsed as the preferred aspirant in a white ballot election in Grand Bassa County. Like Findley, the CDC also endorsed sitting Senators Dallas A.V. Gueh, HenryYallah and George Tengbeh of River Cess, Bong and Lofa Counties respectively. Margibi County Electoral District #4 Representative, Iva Jones and sitting Sinoe County Senator Augustine S. Chea will represent the CDC in their respective counties in the ensuing election.
Former Rep. James Bainey, former Speaker Alex Tyler, and Senator Peter S. Coleman will lead the line for the CDC in Maryland, Bomi and Grand kru Counties respectively, while Charles BardyI of River Gee County Electoral District #3 will run on the CDC ticket in the county and Senator Victor Watson is retained for Grand Cape Mount County. For Gbapolu County, the CDC is sending forth the county’s Electoral District #3 Representative in person of Alfred Koiwood, while Zoe E. Pennue will represent the party in the Grand Gedeh County race.
And the long-time close tie between Nimba County District #1 Representative Jeremiah Koung and CDC has paid off as he was endorsed by the party.
