Liberia’s former first lady and current vice president, Jewel Howard-Taylor, faces tough challenges. The delegates of his political party, the NPP, meeting on 1 December last in extraordinary session under the direction of James Biney decided simply and unanimously to exclude him from the party.
In addition to the current vice president, the slingers also according to Koaci, excluding John Gray, the party president. The reasons for this tumult within the party are diverse. The two people involved would act against the party’s constitution and would have tried to divide it.
None ascribes to Mrs. Jewel Howard-Taylor’s idea of merging NPP’s hard with the CDC in power given the unambiguous relationship with President Weah. They also suspect the vice president of nurturing a presidential ambition for 2023.
The rebels intend to seize President George Weah to replace the current vice-president of the country.
For now, the defendants have not officially pronounced themselves. But according to our source, John Gray described the decision of his exclusion by a group of unconstitutional while denouncing their approach of illegitimate.
