Cummings Congratulates All winners of the By-Elections, But With A Caution Featured

The Standard Bearer of the opposition Alternative National Congress (ANC), Alexander B. Cummings, has congratulated all of the winners of the just held By-Elections in four counties and urged them to continue to remain true in  upholding the interests of the people who entrusted them. 

The four counties in which the By-Elections were held are Bong, Bomi, Grand Gedeh, and Nimba. In a statement issued in Monrovia on the November 16 By-Elections, Mr. Cummings said, “we have been following the unofficial results of the various by-elections which took place on Tuesday, November 16, 2021. While the results are not what had been anticipated for the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), it is generally good for the opposition community which won.”

The ANC is a member of the CPP. The other members of the CPP are the former ruling Unity Party (UP), the Liberty Party (LP) and the All Liberian Party (ALP).

“I thank the Liberian people for again demonstrating their continued commitment to preserve and consolidate Liberia’s young democracy by participating in electoral processes despite the presenting shortcomings and challenges,” the ANC Political leader stated in the statement.  

“Finally, I salute everyone who contested for the courage to step forward, and for offering the nation what really is the truest test of its democracy - the freedom to equally participate and fairly compete. Liberia’s democracy wins when Liberians are allowed to participate freely and fairly in choosing their leaders, and deciding the direction of the country,” he added in the statement.
