Social Media Group, Liberian Electorial Colllege (LEC) Desribes Legislature’s Action, Overreach


“Our total disagreement and concern is with the overreach of this bill which in effect disenfranchises these individuals from exercising their political choice. It would seem by doing so would be penalizing them for having rendered invaluable services to the country. We are all aware of the role played by the bank in the negotiations and the arduous work done by it toward meeting the benchmarks that were required by the IMF and World Bank for external debt relief. We are also aware of the bank’s continuing astute management over the financial system of Liberia in adopting sound policies for the growth and expansion of the economy. We are cognizant of the low savings rate and depth of non-performing loans which have been some of the major challenges facing the banking system. The bank’s role in channeling loanable funds to underserved segments of the population should be embraced and further harnessed”.

“He is a football icon, George Weah, FIFA former “World Best” who turned politician by coincidence as his country got caught up in a long civil war and fragmented necessitating the hope for a leader who would bring the country into one fold the various cleavages which permeated his country.

The UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador who mesmerized his countrymen on the soccer pitch even during the peak of the country civil war came to relevance in his country politics even though he was a neophyte coming from the soccer pitch and brushed off the sweat from the playing pitch and hurriedly hung up his football boots and trading his jersey for coat suits and ties and haphazardly catapulted unto the political stage hoping in desperation that he could hold his country together knowing that soccer is a unifying force in the country and if he could win the 2005 Presidential elections after 14 years of war, Liberia could re-gain its stability”.

Leadership of Liberian 53rd Legislature Must Reflect Credibility to Restore Integrity.


“To restore the sanctity of the Liberian Legislature, incoming lawmakers should begin the first step of their million miles of their legislative journey by weeding out former leaders who ineptly led the Legislature and turned that noble body into public ridicule and embarrassment to Liberians around the world. Former leaders of the 52nd Liberian Legislature, including the Speaker Alexander Tyler, Senate Pro tempore, Cletus Wotorson, and Deputy Speaker Tokpa Mulbah are inept and shame to the Liberian nation and people, making it inconceivable that if the 53rd Legislature mean well for their country and people, they will reject those failed and embarrassing leaders from the 52nd Legislature who want to take leadership again”.
