Amb. Sulonteh Cautions Voters Against ‘Chameleon Politicians’
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent
GBARNGA, JUNE 8 (LINA) – A prominent citizen of Bong County is cautioning voters to be mindful of ‘chameleon’ politicians in the October 2014 Mid-term Senatorial Election.
Liberia’s Ambassador to the United States, Canada and Mexico, Jeremiah Sulonteh, told Bong citizens to thoroughly evaluate persons seeking the county’s senatorial seat and elect someone who will promote development and unity among them.
Chameleon politicians, according to him, are those moving from one party to another in search of jobs.
Addressing citizens recently during a visit to the county, Sulonteh stressed the need for citizens to put aside their political differences and elect a candidate that will keep alive the dreams of the likes of the late Gabriel Kpolleh and others who, he said, promoted the image of the county.
The October 14, 2014 Special Senatorial Election brings to end the nine-year term of Madam Jewel Howard-Taylor, who is seeking a second term in a jam packed race.
Contenders include Cuttington University President Dr. Henrique Flomo Tokpa, former Salala District Representative Martin Kerkula, Deputy Internal Affairs Minister for Operations, Renney Jackson, Attorney James K. Saybay, Jefferson Gbaryan and Franklin Siakor.
