MRU Youths Want GOL Intervene In FLY Polls 

By Prince Nagbe &Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA March 19 (LINA) - The Mano River Youth Parliament is calling on the Ministry of Youth and Sports and other relevant institutions to intervene in the Federation of Liberian Youth (FLY) election brouhaha.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency Wednesday, the Speaker of the Mano River Youth Parliament, Melvin S. Sarh said the Ministry of Youth and Sports should constitute a transitional team that will conduct smooth election activities at FLY.

Speaking at the Parliament’s head office on Capitol Hill in Monrovia, Mr. Sarh described as unacceptable the disqualification of some candidates in the upcoming FLY election.

He said the barring of some candidates from participating in the election by the FLY Election Commission does not only contravene FLY’s constitution, but also the organic law of the state.

The youth leader emphasized that denying young and potential Liberians the opportunity to take part in this national youth endeavor for reasons which contravene its own constitution, was totally wrong and unacceptable.

It can be recalled that election activities at FLY recently suffered a setback, with some candidates, including Maxwell Grigsby, Isaac Charleson and Frank Suku being disqualified by the FLY election commission on grounds that they are either in the employ of Government or for breaching moral ethics.

This decision has been received with mixed reactions by various youth organizations in the country, including the Mano River Youth Parliament.
