Rep. Nyumalin Accused of Betraying ULD

first_img– Advertisement – Barely a month after emerging victorious at the polls in the Lofa Electoral District #1 by-election, Representative Francis Sackila Nyumalin has been accused of ditching the Union of Liberian Democrats (ULD) to pledge support for Vice President Joseph N. Boakai.ULD is one of over 20 political parties qualified by the National Elections Commission (NEC) to contest the October representative and presidential elections. Rep. Nyumalin won the by-election under the ULD ticket in Foya to replace the late Rep. Eugene Fallah Kparkar.Addressing journalists at the party’s headquarters yesterday in Monrovia, ULD national chairman Solomon G. Kahn said Rep. Nyumalin showed great ingratitude for Lofa Electoral District #1 by his defection.“Politically our party feels disappointed in Rep. Nyumalin on grounds that he has expressed his desire to support the Unity Party, which dashed his hopes and aspirations,” the ULD chairman said.He added that Nyumalin should have been preaching the manifesto of the ULD that provided him the opportunity to serve his people in the House of Representatives.“We at the ULD have no problem with any political institution, but the actors in those institutions and the ideas they preach are the ones we are against,” Mr. Kahn noted.Concerning penalties or whatever other options are on the table, he said the national executive committee of the party is studying Rep. Nyumalin’s utterance in support of the VP, and will make a decision in the future.He announced that his party will hold its national convention on Saturday, April 22 in Monrovia to elect its officials, including the standard bearer, chairman, vice chairman, general secretary, among others.“Holding conventions and carrying out other mandates are requirements set by the NEC for political institutions, including ours, that must be respected,” he pointed out.Concerning criteria to contest for positions at the party’s convention, Kahn said one must be a partisan and apply for the position.Rep. Nyumalin is yet to respond to charges that he has betrayed ULD.  His office denied that his support to Vice President Joseph Boakai is a betrayal of ULD.Meanwhile Khan said Madam McDella Cooper is an aspirant for the standard bearer position. He named Isaiah M. Sackor, William York, Onisemus Tompoe and Diaby Nagbe as some of those contesting for the chairman, co chairman, general secretary and member of the convention’s elections committee, respectively.Responding to media queries after the press conference, the standard bearer-in-waiting, Madam MaCdella Cooper, said she has no problem with dual citizenship, citing that Liberians are granted citizenship in many countries around the world.“I respect the laws of our country but there are many good Liberians and other nationals out there who want to come home and contribute to the rebuilding of the country. We need to give others the chance to help in the reconstruction of this nation as we go out there and pay taxes to develop other people’s countries.“I don’t think we should limit our country by preventing our friends to come home and help to build it,” Cooper said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Mr. Kahn “We at the ULD have no problem with any political institution, but the actors in those institutions and the ideas they preach are the ones we are against.” last_img read more
