MDR Expels Three Members for Violating Party Constitution

After conducting an investigation into allegations of Constitutional violations by senior partisans, the National Executive Committee of the Movement for Democracy & Reconstruction (MDR) has unanimously voted to expel three of its executive members.

The expelled officials are Wilfred N. Bangura, Melvin Yealue, and Gonpu L. Kargon, who served as the National Vice Chairman for Governmental Affairs, Secretary General, and Representative of District #4, Nimba County, respectively.

The Chairman of the MDR appointed a Board of Inquiry to hear the allegations of Constitutional violations against the partisans. The Board accorded each accused member due process of law as required by the MDR Constitution.

The investigation revealed that the accused partisans violated Article 14 (a) of the MDR Constitution, which states that no registered member of the party shall owe loyalty to another party or cause another member to pledge allegiance to another party.

The investigation found that Wilfred Bangura, Melvin Yealu, and Gonpu Kargon violated this article by supporting President Weah’s re-election bid and wearing CDC paraphernalia during a gathering of the president’s supporters.

The Inquiry Committee recommended that the membership of the three partisans be expelled from the MDR, citing violations of Article 12 e, which prohibits the unauthorized commitment of the party to any deal, and Articles 12 a and b, which prohibit the misrepresentation of the party’s image.

The MDR warns that anyone doing business with the expelled individuals in the name of the party will do so to their disadvantage.
