Legal dispute will weaken Liberian opposition

Thursday, February 17, 2022

Significance

This comes as the CPP finds itself embroiled in a major legal dispute, involving criminal charges levelled against Alexander Cummings, the leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), one of the coalition’s constituent parties, by the All Liberian Party, another member of the coalition.

Impacts

  • Weah will now face fewer political challenges to his re-election bid.
  • A 2023 win by Weah's coalition may see a quicker ratification of loans and mining concessions.
  • Weah will not prosecute individuals accused of war crimes during the country's civil wars.
