The opposition Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) did not inform the National Elections Commission about its scheduled August 19, 2017 campaign rally and could be annulled in accordance with rules, NEC Chair Cllr. Jerome Korkoya said Wednesday in the capital Monrovia.
He said NEC has requested all qualified candidates to submit their campaign schedule to avoid clash with other political parties in accordance with established elections related procedures.
Cllr. Korkoya: “This is a requirement that the CDC and other candidates are aware of. If they intend to campaign they must submit their plans to the commission.”
CDC Vice Chairman for Mobilization Mulbah Morlue announced the party will kick start its 2017 presidential campaign with a two-million man march on August 19, 2017 in Montserrado County.
He said the party will shutdown commercial activities in Monrovia to showcase that it will win the October votes.
