By Paul Jeebah Albert             As Liberia is about to experience a major transition, the need to make an amendment in the constitution that allows for “snap elections” to be held whenever the approval rating of the president dips, should be given some aforethought and consideration.  A myth does exist […]

Liberia’s Run-off Election Conundrum and Charles Brumskine’s Manipulative Supreme Court Challenge

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh          The November 7 presidential run-off between Boakai and Weah is off, at least for now; thanks to Charles Brumskine and the Liberian Supreme Court.

Beware of Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing: Corrupt Elites Seeking Protection

 By Siahyonkron Nyanseor           In 2011, I served as Coordinator of the Supporters of the Coalition of Liberian Opposition Parties in the Diaspora (S-CLOPD).

Forget Boakai and Weah. Watch the Weah, Johnson and Taylor Movie Near You

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh                Liberian politics is scary. Liberian politics is deadly. The Liberian people are politically gullible and unserious. No debate between Boakai and Weah?

Alex Cummings’ Electoral Fraud Public Posture Too Little, Too Late

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh       Joseph N. Boakai and George Manneh Weah are heading for a November 8 runoff. This is not coming from me but from a watchful public, a public that is so tuned in to these Liberian elections that if it had been a paid pugilistic encounter, either one of the […]

Any of the Major Presidential Candidates Can Win the October 10 Election, Because Issues Are Not Important to the Liberian People

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh      “You kill my ma, you kill my pa. I will vote for you.” “Debate or no debate, I will vote for Weah.” These are the slogans from the Liberian electorates in 1997, and now in 2017; (20 years later) about the presidential candidacies of then-rebel-leader Charles Taylor and George Manneh […]

Why Have Debates When the Liberian Presidential Candidates are not Debating?

Why Have Debates When the Liberian Presidential Candidates are not Debating?

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh              I watched the second Liberian presidential debate. Truth is, it was boring. Like the first debate, I came out even more disappointed with the moderators who did not do a good job of presenting themselves as knowledgeable and thoroughly prepared to take on the task before […]
