Newly Elected Senators Present Credentials
By Winnie Dixon

MONROVIA, January 12 (LINA) – Twelve newly elected senators Monday presented their certificates of election and other credentials to the Secretary of Senate, Nanborlor Singhbe.

The ceremony is consistent with Chapter 2 Rule 1, Section 1 of the Senate’s standing rules which call for the presentation of credentials of senators-elect on the first day of session following their election, according to the Liberia News Agency.

The presentation ceremony which was held in Senate Plenary, followed a declaration by the President of the Senate, Vice President Joseph N. Boakai, that 15 seats were vacant in the senate.

Those who presented their certificates were Montserrado County Senator George Weah, Grand Bassa County's Jonathan Kaipay, Rivercess County Senator Francis Paye, Sinoe County Senator Milton Teahjay, Bong County Senator Jewel Taylor, Nimba County’s Prince Johnson, and Gbarpolu County’s Daniel Naethean.

Others were the Senator of Lofa County Stephen Zargo, Maryland County Senator Gblebo Brown, Grand Kru’s Albert Chea and River Gee Senator Commany Wesseh, while the Senators-elect of Cape Mount, Bomi, and Margibi were absent because they are engaged in legal battles over their election.

In his statement at the ceremony, the Liberian Vice President cautioned senators whose elections are being challenged to follow all of the proceedings involved, because their certificates could either be withdrawn or maintained.

Following the presentations, the body mandated its committee on Rules, Orders and Administration to examine them and submit findings to plenary for further action.
