The release said: “The nomination is in keeping with chapter 2, section 2.2 of the new elections law of 1986.”

Meanwhile, the Liberian Leader has appointed Florence Freeman-Brandy as Montserrado County Superintendent.

According to an Executive Mansion release, Madam Freeman-Brandy’s appointment is subject to confirmation by the Liberian Senate.

In her recent government reshuffle, President Johnson-Sirleaf nominated Madam Freeman-Brandy as Superintendent-designate of Montserrado County, replacing Madam Grace Kpaan.

Madam Kpaan resigned the post recently, because of public pressure that resulted from the recent controversy between her and the House of Representatives.

The controversy centered on the then Montserrado County Superintendent’s failure to account for US$50,000.00 County Development Fund, as demand by the lower House.

“The Liberian Senate will shortly begin confirmation hearings of the new Montserrado County Superintendent-designate and other recent Presidential appointees, the release also said.”
