Multitude Follows Brumskine To File Nomination Papers

Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine yesterday drew massive crowd when he went to file his nomination papers with the National elections commission. The crowd mostly young people, market women and nearby shop owners chanted slogans and sang as Brumskine made his way through the SKD sports stadium where the nomination process is taking place.  Our correspondent who was on the scene says it took Police officers to control the crowd.
There was so much energy and enthusiasm around the SKD complex that it took armed LNP officers to control the crowd of excited supporters trying to get selfies and other photo opportunities with the standard bearer of the Liberty Party and his vice Standard bearer, Harrison Karnweah.
The pair was dressed in navy blue suits escorted by top party and campaign executives. Party chairman Benjamin Sanvee, Campaign chairman Musa Hassan Bility, Darious Dillon, Vice Chairman for political Affairs and Menipakei Dumoe, Deputy chief of communication and other party stalwarts were seen at the sport complex.
In talks with reporters after filling, Cllr. Brumskine assured the press that his running mate, Hon. Karnweah is in full compliance with the Code of Conduct and all other elections laws on the books.
He said “There is a maxim in that where a construction of the law leads to absurdity, the court is under obligation to abandon it.
The law says when a person desires but Karnweah did not desire, I picked him. I am the one who desired, I am the one who is running and I  have no government job”.
Cllr. Brumskine also said he stands by the Code of Conduct and that it should be enforced.  He ended by saying ” I  am for anything that comes up and reminded Liberians that they have a responsibility to vote if they want change and progress.”
