Lawmakers, who are furious with the Speaker’s action, have been holding closed door discussions to plan his removal. Over the weekend, more than 22 of them gathered in the Port City of Buchanan to begin making their move – the kind that will involve massive political maneuvering and bickering. This is expected to be a long haul and probably a redux of past incidents that also saw the removal of two very influential House Speakers – Edwin Snowe and Alex Tyler.

The two authoritative sources that I have just given do not make competence or integrity of relatives an exception to the definition. Therefore, those who are saying that the appointment of relatives who are competent and have integrity falls outside the definition of nepotism are wrong. Unless they write their own dictionaries, they have to accept the current definition of nepotism. Except for monarchies, like Kingdoms and empires, where countries are ruled by families, nepotism is wrong everywhere, especially in democratic countries such as ours. Nepotism is wrong because it is an abuse of power. It provides a situation where the best jobs in a country are occupied by relatives of public officials. It deprives better qualified citizens who are not relatives of public officials of opportunities for employment. A nepotistic leader promotes patronage, opportunism and sycophancy as avenues for employment. In an atmosphere where nepotism prevails, honest patriots and nationalists are deprived of opportunities for employment because they are not prepared to stoop so low. Nepotism therefore is a dangerous and very serious corrupt practice because it has the tendency to promote corruption and mass unemployment. Public Policy

The Contrétemps et Médiocrité of Liberia’s Diplomacy and Foreign Affairs Representation, 1980-the, present.

By, Sarr Abdulai VANDI PhD Extrait Diplomacy is the conduct of the relations of one state with another by peaceful means. Diplomacy is a skill in the management of international relations. Statecraft manages state power to promote national interests and diplomacy; using non-lethal means to manage interstate relations and foreign threats is central to global Realpolitik. Rapid increases in the availability and power of information and communication technologies (ICTs) or, more correctly, telecommunications (telecoms) and info-communications (infocoms) are changing the modes of international relations and the conditions and transformations for…

Interestingly, the 2017 elections have come and gone and many are clinging on to the CDC victory as if it’s the triumph of their lives. Some of these very ones, like myself have always considered George Oppong Weah, grossly incompetent and unfit for the office of the President of the Republic of Liberia. But some of these people are somersaulting suddenly and are singing praises to Weah. You will not believe who they’re scapegoats, THE PROGRESSIVES! Op-ed

Open Letter to Liberian leaders: This letter is regarding the Firestone Plantation in the city of Harbel.

By Maryehdiah Giah Before I get to the point, I want to make in this letter, I would like to give a brief history regarding Liberia, West Africa. Back in the 1800s, free Slaves from America were relocated to this country to relieve them from the pain of slavery. When the free Slaves arrived in Liberia, they met the natives of the country. The free Slaves established their Government as they have seen in America where they resided or were born prior to relocating to Liberia. At this time, the…
