WE’RE SAYING IT AGAIN
‘DICTATORIAL LAWMAKERS: Why Liberians Must Vote Speaker Tyler and Corrupt Bunch Out
The Alex Tyler Led house of Representatives is once again in the spotlight. Since the inauguration of
lawmakers in January 2006, the body has been plagued with allegations of corruption, money changing
hands and a number of questionable tractions that have put the future of Liberians at risk and in limbo.
Things have been so bad that many Liberians have lost faith in the lawmakers and it is becoming even
more clear that majority of those currently in the corridors of the lower house will not be re-elected.

Last time Front Page Africa used the term dictatorial was in describing the actions of members of judicial
branch of government. The expression it resulted in a charge of contempt and subsequent
imprisonment of the FPA editor and Publisher.
We’re using the term, again and this time, with no remorse and forthcoming apology.


WHO REPRESENTS LOFA COME OCTOBER
Front Page Africa measures the fate of some representative and senatorial aspirants in vote –rich Lofa County ahead of the 2011 Elections
With barely four months left for Liberians to go to the polls to vote in a new breed of leaders, key political aspirants, especially those vying for senatorial and representatives seats have been relentless in their political maneuvering in a bit to seize the attentions of eligible voters in their favor.
In Lofa County, key among this year’s contestants are sons and daughters who fled fourteen years civil unrest, now pressing all necessary buttons to sweep vote in the forthcoming elections.

Mediating to save Democracy
The Political Entrance already being ministered by democracy to ensure the basic tenants and values are upheld before the National Elections Commission puts into full gear the electoral process leading to President and Legislative elections in the coming months has already begun producing mixed results, something quite unhealthy for a post-crisis population earnestly striving to rebuild Liberia.
SYMPTOMATIC expressions having begun surfacing barely a week ago when some Liberians, claimed to have been members of the Congress for Democratic Change had assembled at the Monrovia City Hall to pledge support to the candidacy of Unity Party standard bearer Madame Ellen Johnso Sorlef but had experienced disruptions, the earlier tearing down of billboards since planted around the country depicting the programs and policies of government which those in the opposition camp described as indirect campaigning may just have served as precedent.
