The CDC comprises of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), the former ruling National Patriotic Party (NPP) and Liberia People Democratic Party (LPDP).
The parties came to the agreement following an emergency meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Coalition held at the CDC Headquarters in Congo Town, outside of Monrovia. It grew out of their commitment to resolving issues arising out of the Nimba and Bomi Counties By-Election efforts.
As part of the agreement, the parties agreed to exercise key political comportment and decent use of the airwaves in all Coalition affairs.
They also promised to refrain from discussing internal party matters publicly, especially contentious issues repugnant to the collective interests of the CDC.
Furthermore, the parties agreed to strengthen the Coalition’s momentous leadership approach. The NEC encouraged more frequent Coalition Governing Council meetings, which would prove necessary for accelerated discussions on other important matters pertinent to the collective success of the CDC.
Among other things, the NEC of the CDC reaffirmed its commitment to the Coalition protocol by reaffirming its unflinching support to the agenda of the President and Standard-Bearer of the CDC George Manneh Weah.
