...For Voting In US
Lawyers representing the legal interest of the Movement for Progressive Change (MPC) and the National Democratic Coalition have filed a complaint with the National Elections Commission (NEC) against Robert A. Sirleaf for reportedly voting in the November 4, 2014 mid-term Senatorial election in the United States of America.
Cllrs. J. Laveli Supuwood and S. L. Lofen Keneah told Chairman Jerome Korkoya that document in their possession revealed that Mr. Sirleaf also voted in the Democratic Primary in North Carolina on May 4, 2014.
The lawyers in their complaint dated December 8, 2014 reminded Chairman Korkoya that it is interesting to note that the deadline for submission of all documents in the ensuing senatorial election was July 2014.
Counsels for the political parties wondered whether the Montserrado County senatorial candidate denounced his American citizenship before participating in the forthcoming special senatorial election.
The lawyers also argued that there is no record indicating Mr. Sirleaf ever applied in America for the revocation of his American citizenship as well as the certificate of nullification issued him by the United States Government.
According to the lawyers, Liberian laws forbid dual citizenship as in the instant case of Mr. Sirleaf.
Counsels for the two parties have requested NEC to investigate the matter and if Mr. Sirleaf is found guilty, he should be barred from taking part in the senatorial election.
