As part of efforts to reclaim Montserrado County in the upcoming Senatorial Election, the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) has appointed top governmental officials to lead its national campaign team a move that contravenes the national code of conduct.
According to Section 5,1 of the code of Conduct, all officials of government appointed by the president shall not engage in political activities, canvass or contest for elected offices; use government facilities, equipment or resources in support of partisan or political activities and serve on a campaign team of any political party, or the campaign of any independent candidate.
Contrary to the code of conduct, CDC Chairman Mulbah Morlu named the Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) Executive Director to head the Campaign team, Gender minster, Williametta Piso Tarr Media and Communication strategist, Deputy Finance Minister Samora Wolokolie serve as Policy and strategy focus person while the Managing Director of the National Port Authority Bill Twehway was named as County Coordinator.
Making the pronouncement at the National headquarters of the CDC, Chairman Morlu noted that the quality and strength of the campaign team is the party’s first step to resounding victories in the upcoming December 8, 2020 senatorial election.
The formation of the campaign team by CDC has been considered as a serious Violation of the National Code of conduct.
