The vice-presidential candidate of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) of Liberia has defending her decision to accept the job even though some say one of the group’s members — the Liberty Party — is involved in a leadership struggle. The CPP is made up of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) of Alexander Cummings and the Liberty Party, founded by the late Charles Brumskine. Brumskine’s daughter and lawyer, Charlyne, is now the vice-presidential candidate for the CPP in Liberia’s October election. She says she accepted the vice presidency because she follows the rule of law. Brumskine is in the United States where she and her running mate just concluded their party’s convention last week in Philadelphia. Daybreak Africa host James Butty, asked her about criticism she is too young and inexperienced to seek the top job.
