Amendment 2011:

Legal and Structural Reform for a better Liberia

Part I: Legislative Power

    As a citizen of the Republic of Liberia and a member of the Liberian National Bar Association (LNBA) and as I entertain and undertake to write this constitutional and policy paper pertaining to embracing and reassessing the critical and urgent need for constitutional and structural reform of the structure of the Government of the Republic of Liberia for a better Liberia come 2012, I feel deeply obliged and must publicly admit and give credit to colleagues and fellow Liberians who have sacrificially researched, analyzed, recommended, and done much scholarly work in the area of legal and structural reform of the structure of Liberia’s government in order to enhance and guarantee a better future for Liberians and residents of Liberia. This presentation must be had if Liberia should continue to have peace and sustained security and stability after residential and general elections are held in Liberia in November 2011 and a responsible and responsive Liberian Government is elected and sworn to legal and political power in Liberia effective January 2012.

Part II: Executive Power of the State

Since 1847 and throughout the history of Public Administration in Liberia, there has been no system of checks and balances, and our presidents have wielded extraordinary power in the management of the nation’s affairs. The other two branches of government, the Legislative and Judiciary, have always proved powerless in invoking the power of our Constitution. We have never been able to see our legislative branch question the executive branch nor curb the excesses of power of the presidency. The major excesses of the Liberian Presidency remain entrenched in its power to appoint and remove any public official at will, directly or indirectly; to set national priorities and decide what is good or not good for the country; and to determine how our nation’s financial resources should be controlled and expanded. In the management of our nation’s affairs, all social-economic and political decisions that impact the local communities within the political subdivisions continue to be controlled and directed by the president through officials based in the nation’s capital and agents sent to the interior”.


Part III: The Judicial Power of the State

Historically, good governance has been one of Liberia’s mean problems. How can we build and sustain the practices of good governance, rule of law, transparency, accountability, tolerance, merit, equity and decentralization? We must address ourselves to the serious problems we have when it comes to governance. It is a mess”. Yarsuo Weh-Dorliae: Proposition 12 for Decentralized Governance in Liberia, Power Sharing for Peace and Progress, Xvi

Part IV: Remit Public Funding to Liberia's Presidency

Since the essence of democracy is free competition of ideas expressed by political parties and political groups as well as by individuals, parties may freely be established to advocate the political opinions of the people. Laws, regulations, decrees or measures which might have the effect of creating a one-party state shall be and are forthwith declared void and unconstitutional”.

Where Are the1970s and 1980s’ Rights Advocates?

Anyone that were privileged and opportune to have visited and resided in Liberia between the 1970s and 1980s might clearly and vividly remember that between the 1970s and 1980s, Liberians were vehemently and vigorously taught and reminded about their civil and political rights, and their economic, social and cultural rights daily. During these years, students of the University of Liberia and Cuttington University College, junior and senior high school students, labor union, farm workers association, the Liberian Marketing Association, taxis and trucks drivers union, doctors and nurses association, the Liberian National Teachers Union and poor and despised Liberians were insistently and uncompromisingly taught their rights and responsibility in Liberia during the 1970s and 1980s. read more
