 A dangerous twist in the momentum the opposition party Congress for Democratic Change, CDC gained few weeks ago when the party’s former standard-bearer and Vice standard-bearer in the 2011 elections hangs in the balance as news reports emerging from the party ranks and file paint a blurring prospect for the party chances in the October 2011 elections.

According to FrontpageAfrica reports to day, the chairman of the party, Geraldine Doe-Sherif and General Secretary , Acarous Gray have threatened to suspend their party’s standard and vice standard bearers if both leaders do not rescind their demand that the party’s Chairman and Secretary General resign their respective positions since both executives are contesting for seats in the Liberian Legislature. Chairman Geraldine Doe-Sherif is Junior Senator of Montserrado County and is  seeking re-election while Acarous Gray is contesting for District #2 seat in the House of Representative for Montserrado County.

Standard and Vice Standard Bearers of the CDC, Winston  Tubman and George Weah demand for both executives to resign their respective positions, according to news reports come against the fact that if both executives remain in their positions would hamper the efficiency of the party’s campaign with such a crucial campaign and critical election which the party can not afford to leave any stone unturned.

The two party executives refusal to resign their position and threats to suspend their Standard and Vice Standard Bearers and could not submit their names to the National Election Commission as the party’s representatives to contest for President and Vice President respectively in the October elections.

The FrontpageAfrica also reports that the CDC chaplain General Lewis Karmo accused their Vice Standard Bearer, George Weah of intending to sell the CDC to the ruling Unity Party and that was the reason behind him accepting to go second to Winston Tubman whom the nerve of the party find hard embracing  because they see as not being one of them,  a grassroot but an élite and old fashion politician no different from President Sirleaf the party wants to unseat, damaging the CDC brand.  Karmo, according to FPA, says George Weah is using  Cllr. Winston Tubman, with intention to sell the party to the ruling Unity Party but the Standard Bearer has labelled the accusation as” foolish”

The latest wrangling according the FPA reports reached the commit point in a late Friday evening meeting  held at the party’s headquarters.
