President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has received the resignation letter of Ambassador-at-Large Alhaji G.V. Kromah, who has been qualified by the National Elections Commission (NEC) to participate in the forthcoming Special Senatorial Elections in December.
According to an Executive Mansion release, Ambassador Kromah tendered his resignation on Tuesday, 4 November consistent with a policy pronouncement by the Liberian President, requesting all members of the Executive qualified by the NEC to participate in the upcoming senatorial elections to resign their posts.
President Sirleaf praised Ambassador Kromah for adhering to the directive to resign and wished him well in his future endeavors. The Liberian leader called on others in the same category to comply accordingly or face dismissal.
The President’s pronouncement has laid the basis to ensure that public offices and resources are not used to influence the outcomes of electoral processes in the country.
