MONROVIA, LIBERIA-Former Chief Justice Cllr. Frances Johnson Allison says at no time did she call for an interim or transitional government contrary to comments attributed to Senator Jewel Howard Taylor.

Cllr. Johnson Allison said:” I was instead saying that should the election process be delayed beyond the constitutional period, there could be an interim government.”

Speaking to ELBC Friday, November 10, 2017, she said her statement on a local radio in Monrovia was misinterpreted.

Senator Taylor, in an interview with the BBC differed with Cllr. Johnson Allison on calls for a transitional or interim government, stressing for the need for the ongoing process to on.

Meanwhile, Cllr. Johnson Allison is commending the Supreme Court of Liberia for its recent ruling, granting the Liberty Party’s request for a prohibition on the electoral activities.

She said the ruling would now allow NEC to hear the various claims being raised before announcing the next stage of the electoral process
