Rep. Gwion Backs Weah 2nd Term


Grand Gedeh County District #1 Representative, Erol Madison Gwion, has expressed excitement over his return to the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) and, at the same time, pledged his support to President Weah’s reelection bid.

Rep. Gwion, among other things, has affirmed that his support to the second term bid of President Weah is predicated upon the president’s numerous development initiatives over the last five years that affect all counties.

He stated that Liberia’s democracy in the post-war era continue to make significant strides under President Weah, adding that as the general elections come in the next three months, he will front for “a ballot that will see the re-election of President George Manneh Weah to enable him complete the development roadmap he has started some five years ago.


Rep. Gwion, who made the pronouncement at a major press conference held at his Capitol Building office in Monrovia Thursday, cited that there is a need to afford the Weah-Taylor administration a second term because of the tremendous wave of development, particularly as they aim at connecting all county capitals by road gradually.

He stressed that “this signifies that this government is for all counties and all the people.”

The Grand Gedeh County District #1 policy maker then bestowed credits on the Liberian leader for being a unifier and a reconciler, unveiling that his return to the party was through the instrumentality of President Weah who sees reconciliation as the forward movement of the party.

He celebrated information coming from local authority of Grand Gedeh County that there will be a groundbreaking ceremony for the pavement of the Tappita-Toe City Road corridor soon, asserting that this news brings hope not only to the people of the county, but also to the entire southeast “that the light at the end of the tunnel is beginning to show.”

Rep Gwion, who contested on the ticket of the Liberia Restoration Party (LRP) due to disenchantment during the 2021 by-election in Tchien District, Grand Gedeh County, emerged victorious in the polls.

“You may recall a situation in the 2021 Representative by-election before which we suspended our involvement with our party (CDC) and announced that we were going on loan.

“But today, through the instrumentality of His Excellency to unite and reconcile the party, we are back onboard stronger than ever before to help ensure his one-off victory on October 10, this year,” he stated.

Rep. Gwion, who is also Secretary General of the Grand Gedeh County Legislative Caucus, also expressed gratitude to the National Executive Committee of the Coalition for Democratic Change and the Governing Council of the Grand Coalition for solidifying the party in an unmatched manner as they push towards the coming elections.


However, the lawmaker pledged his unflinching support to President Weah because he believes that the Liberian President is on the right trajectory of leadership, intimating that in his constituency, his people are resolved to rally their support for the re-election of the President through his call as their leader.

Meanwhile, the Grand Gedeh County policy maker said that despite people fielding candidates overnight against him, he remains the face of Tchien District because of the exceptional leadership he has brought to the people.
