Sen. Gaye Wants Stakeholders Intervene In Lower House Crisis
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, August 29 (LINA) - Grand Gedeh County Senator G. Alphonso Gaye has called on the Inter-religious Council of Liberia, the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), ECOWAS and the US Embassy to mediate the crisis at the House of Representatives.

The Senator’s call is in reaction to the Senate’s decision to mediate in the current crisis at the House of Representatives.

Addressing a news conference at his Capitol Building office in Monrovia at the weekend, Senator Gaye observed that the Senate’s involvement in the mediation process at the lower House will further deepen and prolong the crisis.

He opined that the Senate lacks the moral standing to carryout genuine mediation to resolve the conflict at the House of Representatives because its leadership and some other senators have made themselves party to the ongoing conflict.

The Liberian Senate at an Executive Session constituted a six-member committee headed by Senate Pro-Tempore Amah Z. Jallah to intervene and help resolve the ongoing crisis among members of the House of Representatives.

The crisis is centered on a resolution reached by a splinter group of the lower House requesting House Speaker Alex Tyler to “recuse” himself from his position and presiding over plenary.

The resolution followed the criminal indictment of Tyler over his alleged involvement in a bribery scandal linked to the UK-based Sable Mining Company which was seeking to change some laws to access an iron ore mine in the country.

Other members of the Senate mediating committee are Senators Geraldine Sheriff of Montserrado County; Henry Yallah of Bong County; Peter Coleman of Grand Kru County; Joseph Nagbe of Sinoe County and Stephen Zargo pf Lofa County.
