Liberia: Youth League Regrets Action At National Vision Conference

The National Youth League through its acting chairperson Salinto Montgomery has expressed its deepest regret and apology to the Standard Bearer of the Congress for Democratic Change George M. Weah and its Chairperson George Solo as well as the entire National Executive Committee.

Mr. Montgomery said apology is against the following reasons which include the League's violation of the CDC Communications Policy by issuing a statement on the National Vision Conference in the name of the CDC without authorization.

The misrepresentation of the party's position regarding Mr. Weah's attendance at the just ended National Vision Conference, which led to the suspension of Mr. Jefferson Koijee.

It can be recalled that the Executive Committee of the Youth League endorsed the decision of the party's Leadership in its disciplinary measures against the suspended Chairperson at which time him was requested to unconditionally submit to the appropriate grievance process as required by the Bye-Laws and constitution of the CDC.

However, the Youth League further said it regrets the obvious embarrassment and inconvenience its previous actions may have caused the image of the Party after a careful investigation of events and circumstances. The Youth League believes the party's leadership acted appropriately in the supreme interest of the peace and stability of the mighty CDC.

Finally, the Youth League reaffirmed its commitments to the rule of law and the ideological philosophy of the CDC and renewed its assurances of in the quest to move the Party forward.
