The Presiding Justice in the Chamber of the Supreme Court has mandated the National Elections Commission through its Chairperson, Davidetta Brown Lassannah to stop further proceedings in the Liberty Party case that is before them for litigation.
Associate Justice Yussif Kaba Tuesday cited all parties for a legal conference this Wednesday, November 23, regarding the matter at the Temple of Justice.
Justice Kaba’s November 22, mandate according to our Judicial Correspondent was triggered by two separate petitions filed by Liberty Party Chairman Musa Bility’s lawyer Cllr. Hilton Powo, seeking for a writ of certiorari and prohibition as provided by Chapter 16, Section 16.21 of the Civil Procedure Law of Liberia.
Cllr. Powo’s petitions questioned the legal credibility of the NEC Hearing Officer’s decision against the LP Chairman Bility, which was later affirmed by the Board of Commissioners of the National Elections Commission.
Our Judicial Correspondent further said that Justice Kaba’s Wednesday gathering is seeking to hear from Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence and others before making any decision in connection to the matter.
