Liberia - Unity Party (UP) Risk Lawsuit to Produce the Living Body of the President Elect
Dr. Clarence R. Pearson, Sr.
LET ME BE CLEAR, differences in public opinion or political criticism may not be associated with hatred. Matter of fact, criticism has the potential to bring out the best in us. You’ll stop that weak counter and get use to the pressure that is naturally associated with being an in-position.
LET ME ALSO BE CLEAR, there are legal issues surrounding a constitutionally elected president should there be any consequential changes in his health or personal security. You will agree with me that the minute an individual is pronounced president elect, his security becomes the burden of the state. As such, any endangerment to his person affects the entire country. On this premise I am concern over the prolonged absence of the president elect from our political and social/public space. More besides, upon his departure, it was publicly announced that he was departing for the USA to appreciate partisans on his victory and to visit family members. Going onto two weeks, he has not attended a single one of the events organized in his honor, nor has he been sighted in a formal or informal public function. These are genuine reasons for concern.
ADDITIONALLY, upon our persistence for him to make any form of public appearance, the UP Secretary General (SG) has had a press conference stating that the itinerary and photos of the president elect in live events would be made public, and that has not happened. Meanwhile, we are getting press release quoting the president elect and still photos with no time stamp to suggest that he is okay.
NOW THEREFORE, because I feel I will be directly injured as a citizen: emotionally, psychologically, practically, etc., should there be a constitutional crisis on these grounds, I am planning to file a lawsuit at the Supreme Court under advisement, to ensure the UP account for the president elect with proof that his person and security is not under threat. Make no mistake, this is not a joke. This is a patriotic effort in the interests of the Liberian people and the peace and security of the motherland.
