-Beyan Kota Says People Are Suffering; Country Held Hostage
An official of one of the groups of people living with disabilities has observed that with the unfolding legal wrangling and bickering after the October 10 polls, the country`s economic situation is becoming unbearable as evidenced by rising prices.

Making the assertion Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at the headquarters of the association along the Robertsfield Highway in Margibi County, Beyan Kota observed said with such unfolding political event in the country ordinary Liberians especially people living with disabilities are struggling to survive because the country is being held hostage.
“The economy is uncertain as prices have skyrocketed to the extent that the disadvantaged people especially people living with disabilities are suffering because the country has been held hostage.
Commenting on Liberty Party`s complaints filed to the electoral body, he stated that only 30 days are allotted by the Election Law to hear matters that arise from any elections in the country.
The president of the group, who did not name individuals or political parties responsible for holding the country hostage, has expressed fear that the 57 complaints filed by the Liberty Party against the National Commission is scaring as this could undermine the smooth transitional process from one democratically elected government to another.
According to him, such action to delay the process for a smooth transition will continue to hang a dark cloud over the country, as such has the tendency to undermine the democracy which the country has gained and fathomed over the last 12 years.
Kota, who lost as representative candidate in Montserrado County electoral district 12, expressed fear that if not handled with care and precision, the country could run out of constitutional protection by January 16, 2018 wherein there would be no government to appeal to, and the existence of the Supreme Court would also be undermined and there wouldn`t be a smooth transition as anticipated.
“It is our appeal to all party litigants to respect the rule of law, bearing in mind the survivability of the country is key, and that the Liberty Party should keep to the 30 days enshrined in the election Law of the country,” Beyan Kota observed.
Kota maintained that the international community has invested so much resources including financial and human capital in Liberia`s peace process.
“To maintain the stability of this country the United Nations committed several thousand troops to ensure that this happen, and any other thing contrary to that the United Nations might declare Liberia as a protectorate state,” he implored.
He cautioned all parties involved in the matter including the Liberian people to do whatever it takes to avoid constitutional crisis as this could lead to the setting up of an interim government.
The CAB executive director and president also used the occasion to call on Liberians to allow the law to take precedence.
