Liberia: Electoral Fraud or Not, Ruling CDC Could Hinge on Brownie Samukai’s Pending Case Before the Supreme Court to Thwart His Reaffirmed Victory


Samukai’s Sticky IssueThis is where it gets sticky for the Senator-elect whose would have to put up a strong argument before the Supreme Court that would overturn the ruling of the lower court. The ruling CDC knows this weak link in Samukai’s battle to retain his victory even if it is confirmed by the Supreme Court. Even his nomination to contest had to be cleared by the Supreme Court when it was contested that he had been found guilty of theft of property and criminal conspiracy. The CDC may not have the efficacy to influence the Bench decision in the electoral dispute case. Legal and political pundits believe Samukai’s victory is very convincing and the ruling CDC is quite aware but only attempting to take advantage of a loophole.
