….Says Political Leaders Must Respect The Law
The standard bearer of Coalition for Democratic Change, Senator George Weah, says those who want to lead Liberia must be respecters of the law and not to flout the organic commandment of the country.
Weah said “you cannot talk about wanting to lead the country and not respect the law.” He believes that political leaders, who had desire to seek public office should have resigned far ahead of time.
Addressing a news conference recently, Senator Weah saidas a leader of the country, he respected the law that’s why he resigned as peace ambassador far ahead of time because he knew it would have affected his ambition to run for the presidency.
“You cannot want to be a leader of a country and not respect the laws of that country and that is why I resigned as peace ambassador years ago because I knew it would have affected my ambition to run for president,” the senator accentuated.
However, Senator Weah observed that there appears to be lack of support for the code of conduct and he wished that everyone would be given the chance to participate in the elections in the absence of a code of conduct.
Notwithstanding, the Lawmaker said whether or not the code of conduct is discriminatory, he wouldn’t be the one to say but that the ruling of the supreme court must be respected by all Liberians.
Asked about his chances in 2017, Weah said he’s confident that he will win. Weah said he will be elected president based on his work and relationship with the Liberian people
