PUL Press Club Fmr. Secretary Wants Recent Results Nullified

As the leadership crisis within the Press Union of Liberia deepens, a member of the Union is calling for the annulment of the disputed Gbarnga election which is currently being challenged at the Supreme Court of Liberia.
Mr. Eric Kennedy said annulling the results of the Gbarnga elections and holding fresh ones is the surest way to end the current leadership crisis within the PUL, which he said, is worrisome and counterproductive to Liberia’s fledgling democracy, adding that the current leadership crisis is hurting the PUL and should not be allowed to continue unabated.
He reminded the current PUL leadership and all Liberian journalists to take cognizance of their crucial roles in Liberia’s democratic process and end the conflict hovering over the Union which has the propensity to undermine the gains the Union has made in its nearly six decades of existence.
Kennedy emphasized that the need to urgently resolve the PUL leadership crisis cannot be overemphasized especially when the incumbent president and secretary general whose tenures have expired are still at the helm of power at the Union and have declared intentions to contest in the impending October Legislative and Presidential Elections.
The former PUL Press Club Secretary wants cool heads to prevail in the Union to restore sanity and redeem the credibility of the Journalists’ umbrella organization that has earned a reputation as one of Liberia’s best civil society organizations.
