LOFA COUNTY, LIBERIA-Some citizens of Lofa County have filed an application to the Supreme Court of Liberia seeking to declare the Lofa County Senatorial Seat vacant.
The petition for the Writ of Mandamus was filed on behalf of the citizens by former Justice Ministers and prominent sons of Lofa County, Cllrs. Koiboi Johnson and Laveli Supuwood.
The petitioners pleaded with Justice-in-Chambers, Joseph Nagbe, to compel Senate Pro-Temp Albert Chie and the National Legislature to declare the Lofa County Senatorial Seat vacant.
They said the seat has been vacant for seven months, due to Mr. Brownie Samukai’s failure to remove his disability penalty following his conviction for theft, which, according to them violates Articles 37 of the 1986 Constitution.
Following a conference Tuesday, September 28, 2021, with Justice Nagbe, the Clerk of the Supreme Court was ordered to issue the Alternative Writ of Mandamus against Senate Pro-Temp Chie and the entire Liberian Senate
