Executive Mansion Speaks On Tyler’s Recusal Decision 


MONROVIA, September 2 (LINA) - The Executive Mansion has thanked Representative J. Alex Tyler for recusing himself as Speaker of the House of Representatives at the National Legislature.

An Executive Mansion release noted that the recusal of Tyler as Speaker will now allow the House of Representatives and the National Legislature in general to focus on its constitutional duties for the development of the country.

The Executive Mansion acknowledged that the Executive has over the past several years worked with the National Legislature in carrying out its duties for the good of the country and will continue to do so.

The release points out further that this collaborative process changed after Tyler announced his bid for the Liberian presidency and adopted a non-cooperative posture. As a result, critical legislations were stalled which had the effect of undermining the country’s development plan.

The Executive Mansion noted that it is clear that an indictment is not the presumption of guilt but the start of a legal process, but it also brings into question whether it is right for one so charged to continue to preside over a body which has responsibility for the allocation of resources for the country.

The Executive Mansion said it expects that Tyler will continue to make contributions to the governance and development of the country and help
maintain the peace and stability of Liberia.
