The Political Affairs Officer in the offices of Bong County Electoral District #5 Representative Lawrence Flomo says the public outcry by former Representative George Mulbah for Deputy Speaker Prince Moye to contest the 2020 special senatorial elections is a recipe for confusion in the county.
It was reported on a local radio station Gbarnga Monday, May 20, 2019, by former Representative George Mulbah that he and others are negotiating behind the scene to ensure that Liberia’s deputy house speaker Moye contests the upcoming 2020 special senatorial elections, especially in Bong County.
From that stance, Lawrence Flomo said the statement by the former Lawmaker of Jorquelleh District# 3 is a recipe for a divided Bong Legislative Caucus and the citizens.
Lawrence who is a staunch supporter of Senator Henry Yallah intimates that the deputy-speakership position currently occupied by Representative Moye in the country is satisfactory and should be maintained by the citizens of Bong County.
The debate raised by Hon. Mulbah is raising a serious eyebrow among supporters of Senator Henry Yallah and Deputy Speaker Moye while the majority of the ordinary citizens are calling on Representative Moye to give a deaf ear to the quest of the former lawmaker.
On the other hand, a lot of the citizens speaking in a separate interview with The Monrovia Times said Hon. Moye must contest in this pending Senatorial election in the County.
Some of the citizens allege that the current senator of the County has failed them, so they must replace him with their developmental son Rep. Moye of District#2 in the county.
Meanwhile, many political commentators in the county are assuming that if the debate Hon. George Mulbah is proffering is adhere to by the Deputy Speaker Moye, there could be a major political and development split in Bong County.
