Gov’t Upholding Code of Conduct 100% - Jackson
By Stephen N. Sonpon, LINA

MONROVIA, July 19 (LINA) - Deputy Information Minister Isaac Jackson has said the Code of Conduct promulgated by the Governance Commission does not affect public officials engaging in political activities outside of government.

Addressing the Ministry of Information regular press briefing Tuesday in Monrovia, Jackson pointed out that the Government of Liberia is 100 percent upholding the tenets of the Code of Conduct.

Jackson’s statement comes against the backdrop of some individuals “misinterpreting” the Code of Conduct, especially Section 5.1 that states that no employee or official appointed by the President of Liberia shall engage in political activities, canvass or contest for elected offices.

He said the Code of Conduct was signed into law on May 12, 2014 by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to serve as integrity check for employees of the three branches of government.

Jackson explained that officials of government attending political party activities or contesting for posts at party level are not against the Code of Conduct.

He cautioned the public not to misconstrue the Code, adding that it is in the interest of the Liberian people.
