By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, February 9 (LINA) -The All Liberian Party (ALP) has elected a new corps of officials at its first annual convention in Gbarnga, Bong County to lead the party to 2017 general elections, with key founding members losing their posts.

One of the founding members who lost his position was acting chairman Emmanuel Lomax, who was defeated by former Gbarpolu County Senator Theodore Momo 66 to 144votes.

Others elected were Bell Bright Robert, Vice Chairman for Administration; Chief Budu Wilson, Vice Chairman for Mobilization, Recruitment and Membership; Trulor Dolo, Vice Chairman for Political Affairs and Rev. David Cammue, Secretary General.

Mr. Wilbert Merchant was elected Vice Chairman for International Affairs, among others.

In remarks, following the election, Mr. Benoni Urey, political leader of ALP, urged all partisans to put the interest of the party first, irrespective of the outcome of the electoral process.

According to Urey, the electoral process that ushered in the ALP officials clearly demonstrates the maturity of the party in fostering democracy in Liberia.

He expressed confidence that with the election of the officials, ALP has the ability to move mountains in the 2017 presidential and general elections.

The ALP first National Convention brought together delegates from the 15 political sub-divisions of Liberia.
