The barrage of suspected electoral fraud and irregularities has made political parties who did not make it to the runoff elections hesitant to endorse any of the two parties contesting in the November runoff election. While the ruling Unity Party (UP) and the opposition Coalition for Democratic are intensely lobbying to win over some of the major opposition political parties to complement their strength in the runoff election, most of the parties being relied upon are doubtful over who to support because they feel cheated in the elections. Liberty Party for example, is calling for reelection on ground that the October 10 polls did not meet the minimum standards to be referred as free, fair, transparent elections.
The standard bearer, Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine feels he was robbed of his legitimate votes during the elections. Sure, glaring irregularities during the elections give ground to his grave allegation.
The three-time presidential candidate was so much sure of clinging onto the presidency during these elections and still cannot fathom how he ended up at third place and heavily challenged by political newcomer Alexander Cummings in some counties.
Being an astute lawyer, Brumskine has vowed to exhaust every opportunity provided for by law in seeking redress to the party’s concern.
