MONROVIA, LIBERIA (Joseph Koon) – Presidential appointees and all civil servants covered by the Code of Conduct are now preparing for the political race in the pending Mid-Term Senatorial Elections in October this year.
But, President George Weah has directed all Presidential appointees and civil servants covered by the Code of Conduct and desirous of contesting the pending Senatorial Elections to resign in 30 days.
According to Chapter 5.2, Section 10 of the Code of Conduct, all officials and civil servants covered by such category, are required to resign their positions within 30 days upon the issuance of this Presidential Directive.
The Supreme Court had earlier rendered opinion over the intense controversy on the implementation of the Code of Conduct during the 2017 Presidential and Legislative Elections.
The National Elections Commission also disqualified some candidates for violating the Code of Conduct in the same year.
