Stop these ugly developments
We are noticing a sour relationship between the United Democratic Movement (UDM) and the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), which to some extent is not good for the health of the country’s democracy.
The two political establishments have both seen themselves as the alternative third force, but the conflict of ideologies they each have is seen here as the crisis point. One is not disputing the fact that the third force concept is a controversial one; and fair judgment on those whom have been at the helm of things since the country attained independence, about 51 years ago is separating the two sides.
The UDM is seen to have a close camaraderie with the ruling APC, on the other hand the NDA has always shared a similar political ideology with those of the main opposition, the Sierra Leone People’s Party. If there is a tie in forthcoming multi-tier election, especially in the Presidential race, one of these political parties would likely lean its support to one of the two older political parties that have been in power since independence. This is where the sour relationship that has begun souring is too dangerous for the two third force parties.
Already members have cross camping between them and claims of grave allegations that criminalize members on each camp have been floating across. It is little imagine that both the NDA and the UDM would soon reach a compromise, though one would not dispute the fact that in politics no real enemies exist, but the scratch of the matter on the surface remain their conflicting ideologies.
However, it should be said that this would not do each of them any good. The spirit of democracy should fair and allow the masses to enjoy exemplary leadership style in their hope messages that really, they are nursing up to become good leaders that the country has been looking for. Until we realize this as citizens of the land, we’ll have no ending sigh for our political problem.
