Liberia: 'Opposition Will Support Boakai' Simeon Freeman Predicts

The Political Leader of the opposition Movement for Progressive Change, Simeon Freeman, has predicted a massive opposition support for Vice President Joseph Boakia as was done 2011 for President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

Speaking on the Capitol FM breakfast show, the MPC political leader said most of the opposition political are mushrooms parties who would end up in the camp of the ruling establishment when the elections enter the second round.

"You do not have too many presidential candidates because most of these people are proffered by the system in order to divide votes. They have created some of these parties and people to take our votes and give it to them which might be the sources of problem," he said.

He however emphasized that there is no clear leverage of any one person or political party in this presidential race.

"Because someone goes to a place and people see him or her does not mean they are going to vote that person and everybody knows that. For example, somebody comes here and five thousand people turn up to listen does not mean he or she has the vote," Freeman stated.
