-With Call To Citizens To Abide By S/Court Decision
Days after the Supreme Court of Liberia handed down its final judgment in the legal battle that emanated from the conduct of the October 10, 2017 elections, the Women’s Situation Room (WSR), and its partners, the Liberian National Bar Association has launched a new project called “talking bus”.

The talking bus venture is the first in the political history of the nation and citizens cannot overemphasize how informative this initiative has to be special in terms of what politicians might bring to the political playing field and what the community members need to expect or should be sure is germane or within the reach of a politician with regards to the lawmakers’ role.

The project which was held on Friday December 8, 2017 at the Mamba Point Hotel in Monrovia, was launched under the theme: ‘upholding the rule of law”, will give Liberian the opportunities to learn and analyze the high court opinion in various local languages as it goes around the country.

The Supreme Court recent decision paved the way for the runoff election which is expected to take place any time, and as well put an end to the struggle between two protesting political parties and the National Elections Commission.

Giving the overview of the launch, the initiator of WSR explained that the project aimed at explaining and discussing the Supreme Court opinion to the common people.
Cllr. Yvette Chesson-Wureh stated that the Supreme Court decision is part of the process of implementing the Liberian democracy, noting, “we must accept the Supreme Court’s decision and for the sake of our democracy, promote law and peace as we go forward to elections.”
“The Supreme Court has spoken; no one else can change what they have said. This is final. As Liberians, we must respect our constitution, which states that our Supreme Court is the final judge in all election matters,” Cllr. Wureh observed.
According to her, this is about going to court and ensuring that the process is brought to a logical conclusion.
With this, added “women of Liberia are tire of war.”
“The project will take place this week; we have translators to interpret the court opinion in the various local languages across the country.”
The WSR is the women’s peacebuilding mechanism to mitigate conflict before, during and after elections in African countries. It is a process that mobilizes women in collaboration with youth to ensure active participation in peaceful electoral processes in accordance with UNSCR 1325 which affirmed the role of women in peace processes and peacebuilding in their respective countries.
WSR’s mandate is to ensure a peaceful environment pre, during, and post elections in all the countries where the process is being replicated. It gets it mandate from the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 and the Gender is “My Agenda Campaign of the African Union.”
