According to Senator Lawrence, since the National Chairman Musa  Bility refused to honor the invitation for both parties to participate and witness the signing of the constitution, stressing that  she invoked article 6 section 1 paragraph 3 of the 2021 constitution which is consistent with the party’s 2015 constitution that governs the January 2021 convention.

“The political leader, in consultation and collaboration with the NEC, shall formulate policy and procedures to implement the decisions of the national convention, called special convention as provided for in article viii, and take such other actions and proper measures that he /she may deem as necessary to advance the best interest of the party”.

According to her, she instructed the secretary of the convention, Mr. Jacob Smith, to sign the constitution for submission to the authority of the National Elections Commission.

But speaking on local media, the National Chairman of Liberty Party Musa H. Bility disclosed that he and Secretary-General Martin Kollah were not part of the signing ceremony because the political leader had no authority to hold any meeting in the name of the Party.

He told the media that the political leader and other party executives who were part of that ceremony are not members of the Liberty party.

Bility narrated that the issue Senator Lawrence and the others took to the court had been settled and the Justice in Chamber did not issue any rate stressing that the document in question needed no rectification.
