MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The United States Ambassador to Liberia, Christine Elder, says it is the lack of commitment to national development, the planned protest by the Council of Patriots.

The Council of Patriots recently announced that it was staging another round of protest on July 24 to compel the Government of Liberia to act upon several demands it presented days after the June 7 protest.

But in a statement issued Thursday, July 18, 2019, Ambassador Elder said while the United States Embassy supports the rights of citizens to lawfully assemble, but the timing of the protests is misplaced.

She said:” It is important to note that events leading to the July 26, 2019 Independence Day celebrations are devoid of partisan promotion and civil tensions.”

The United States Ambassador wants every Liberian focus on working together for the common good of the Country.
