The Liberian leader has submitted a bill seeking to cancel all tenure positions within the Executive Branch of Government. The bill was introduced today at the Capitol during the first day sitting of the legislature’s special re-called session days after a legislative retreat held at the Millennium Hotel in Monrovia.
The bill when passed into law will affect institutions such as; National Elections Commissions (NEC), Central Bank of Liberia (CBL), Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA), Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC), NASSCORP and others.
Many pundits believe that the move by the president would undermine our laws if the proposed bill is enacted into law because the motive seems unknown.
With the recent wave of opposition lawmakers defecting to the ruling establishment and the overwhelming popularity the Liberian leader enjoys, it’s not clear what this proposed law hopes to achieve.
The bill entitled ” An Act Prohibiting the Tenure of Public Officials Within the Executive Branch of Government” was read on the agenda and further discussion about said bill was held in Executive Session preventing media coverage.
