Senatorial Doe-Sheriff--Senator Tells Ellen

Montserrado County Senator Geraldine Doe-Sheriff says the issuance of Executive Order 65 by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, restricting people's movement, banning rallies and gathering for a period of thirty days is a complete disregard for the rule of law and the separation of powers.

 

Senatorial Doe-Sheriff said Executive Order 65 shows a lack of coordination of the three branches of government, noting that such a declaration is unheard of in our democracy.

“This undermines our democracy that we have worked so hard to achieve and maintain; it threatens peace and stability and poses a threat to a transparent, free and fair elections; and gets one to wonder, what are the President's intentions?,” the Montserrado County senator said in a dispatch from Turin, Italy where she is attending a conference on Child Labor organized by the International Labor Organization (ILO).

The former CDC Chairperson wondered why the President's declaration affected only Montserrado County, and not the rest of Liberia, which is also plagued with the Ebola virus.

“The situation is not synonymous to people in Montserrado alone as several others have crossed from county to county during voters' registration and have proceeded to those counties to canvass for their candidates as well. Ladies and gentlemen of the press, peaceful Liberians join me in condemning this gross violation of our rights and in the same manner ask, Madam President to immediately withdraw the order, with an apology to the Liberian people,” Senator Doe-Sheriff indicated.

This is the first public statement coming from the office of Sen. Doe Sheriff since she resigned as chairman of the leading opposition political party. Although senator Doe Sheriff remains a member of the CDC but she has been quiet on major issues as of late.
