The People’s Liberation Party has, with immediate effect, relieved three of its acting executive members for their alleged involvement into acts which contravene the norms, bylaws and constitution of the party.
Those relieved of their positions include Wilmot Paye, former Chairman; Henry Sackie, former Vice Chairman for Political Affairs; and Kansualism Kansuah, former Secretary General of the party.
Addressing a news conference on Tuesday at the PLP headquarters in Congo Town, the party’s Assistant Secretary General for Press and Public Affairs, Stephen Vorkpor, said former chairman Wilmont Paye was removed, following investigations into countless numbers of complaints brought against him by members of the General Policy Commission (GPC) and other local county officials of the party.
The complaints filed against Paye, according to Vorkpor , were based on alleged gross violation of the constitutional rights of several members of the Party serving in leadership positions across several counties.
Vorkpor noted that it was also established and confirmed that Paye directly instructed and authorized the Acting Montserrado County Chairman Washington to replace the entire leadership structure of the Montserrado County Youth Assembly with unknown members who have not been vetted and approved by the GPC.
Meanwhile, the PLP Assistant Secretary for Press and Public Affairs indicated that the former Acting Vice Chairman for Political Affairs , Henry Sackie, has dismally performed in using his office to politically move the party forward, in keeping with the PLP’s By-laws and Constitutions, from which he was relieved.
He also said Kansualism Kansuah was relieved of his position for grossly deviating and poor performance during the period under review, as far as the GPC is concerned.
Vorkpor further added that Wilmot Paye , Henry Sackie, and Kansualism Kansuah remain members of the PLP and are encouraged to turn over all properties of the party, which they may still have in their possession.
When contacted, Wilmot Paye described the decision of the party to relieve him of his position as lack of self-confidence on the part of the party’s political leader Dr. Daniel Cassel.
