Three opposition political parties Monday said they will collaborate to hold the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) accountable for its stewardship of the country in relation to respecting the constitution and the rights of Liberians.

According to a statement issued in Monrovia, Unity Party (UP),the Liberty Party (LP), and the Alternative National Congress (ANC) said they “have decided to collaborate in the interest of the Liberian people to ensure the continued evolution of our democracy.”

“While all three (3) parties will maintain their independent identities and leadership, we will collaborate to articulate common solutions and alternatives to our country’s challenges. We will also collaborate to hold the CDC led Government accountable to our constitution and people,” the parties said.

“Subsequently, the political leaders from the three collaborating parties will meet along with the Legal and other appropriate teams to work out the legal framework and other political modalities.”

The three institutions were amongst political parties and candidates, which the CDC defeated in the 2017 vote.
