CDC holds primaries for Montserrado County: Paulita Wie District No. 9 Aspirant Cries Foul

Paulita Wie
 CDC held its primaries for Montserrado County District representative aspirants over the weekend in Monrovia.
Ms. Paulita Wie, one of the candidates, who contested for District #9  against  Munah Pelham-Youngblood, claimed the votes were rigged. Youngblood, according to the tally announced, had 28 votes, Hannah Yates received ten votes, while Wie received seven votes.

While Pelham-Youngblood was rejoicing her victory, Wie took to social media, expressing her dissatisfaction of the process. She wrote:"Free, fair and transparent primary process is what I did submit myself to and not a stage managed or switching of a ballot box from the porch through the office of the party chairman and down the stairs and then to the stage for observers, the press and the public to see and count. 44 delegates voted but yet we witnessed 45 delegates that voted on stage.”
She continued, "Blue ink was used to vote without the papers being folded, but during the live counting, we saw black ink and folded papers. Our national and international observers were not opportune to enter the office were the votes were being cast. Serious concerns and this is unacceptable! Fool some of the people and not all of the people.”

A delegate of District #9, Zone 27 attested to Ms. Wie’s claims. According to Larry Rogers Tugbeh, he was disappointed in the primaries results. He said, there were 45 delegates qualified to vote, but one could not turn up because she was sick, yet her name was pronounced that she had voted. “We need a speedy intervention into this process because if not so, we the zonal head of the 30 zones of District 9 will resign from the political party of CDC,” he said.
