I am confident that Liberty Party will be the biggest influencer in electing the next President of the Republic of Liberia,” she said. But by the Grace of God and the diligence of our partisans, the Liberty Party survived what internal and external saboteurs intended to be a devastating and neutralizing blow to our Party,” she said.
