NEC Mediating In CDC Crisis

By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, August 18 (LINA) - The National Elections Commission (NEC) has begun mediating in the expulsion of the National Chairman of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), George Solo, with some executive members of the party.  

According to the Communication and Outreach Director of NEC, Joey T. Kennedy, the Commission has been holding discussions with senior executive members of the CDC over the expulsion of Chairman Solo from the party without following the party’s constitution.

Speaking Monday in an interview with journalists shortly after a brief discussion at the NEC headquarters, Director Kennedy indicated that the CDC wrote two contradictory letters to the NEC.

He said the first letter indicated that the party had expelled its National Chairman for allegedly violating the party’s constitution, while in the second one the CDC wrote that Chairman Solo had been suspended and turned over to the grievance and ethics committee of the party for investigation.

He stressed that it is the NEC’s obligation to mediate in conflicts emerging in all political parties in the country and tries to resolve crises within political parties.

He pointed out that Chairman Solo had also protested against his expulsion from the CDC to the NEC, and claimed he was not aware of his suspension and that he needed time to study the context of the suspension letter from the party.

Director Kennedy disclosed that the NEC has scheduled the mediation discussion between Chairman Solo and some senior executive members of the CDC on Friday, August 22, to resolve the expulsion crisis.

It is can be recalled that recently, some executive members of the CDC announced the expulsion of the party’s National Chairman Solo for alleged conflict of interest.
