It appears the internal fight within a constituent member of the governing Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) is far from over as Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor’s faction of the National Patriotic Party (NPP) officials have written Justice Minister Frank Musa Dean, calling for the investigation of Maryland County Senator James Biney, who is also holding on as National Chairman of the NPP, which formed a coalition with George Weah’s Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) and former House Speaker Alex Tyler’s Liberia People Democratic Party (LPDP).
The party filed a formal complaint against Senator Biney, who is also National Chairman for his faction of the NPP, in a letter dated December 27, 2022, and sent to Cllr.
