The four collaborating opposition political parties have on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, endorsed Abraham Darius Dillion, Liberty Party vice-chair for political affairs, and Telia J. Urey, daughter of businessman Benoni Urey, to occupy the vacancies created by the deaths of Montserrado County Senator Geraldine Doe-Sheriff and District #15 Representative Adolf A. Lawrence, respectively. Sen. Naatehn added, “this endorsement is a demonstration of the collaborating parties’ ongoing efforts to further enhance cooperation, confidence building, and mutual respect as a basis for the consolidation of our individual strength, and capacity into a common purpose of building and sustaining our collaborative relationship. “We, therefore, reaffirm our commitment to using these by-elections scheduled for July 2, 2019, to propagate the essence of our collaboration, and therefore, call on all partisans, supporters and the Liberian people to support the collaborating candidates,” he said. “This is why we are going around the country to educate our people about the essence of the protest because the international community is carefully following the process,” Kolubah said. “To tell the Liberian people we are serious about the protest, my children will be part of the protest on June 7,” he declared to the deafening applause from the floor comprising mainly party supporters.
