There are reports that some 30 members of the House of Representatives are still craving for the removal of their Speaker, Bomi County Representative Alex J. Tyler, and therefore have attested their signatures to the document that will ‘immediately oust.

According to our informed legislative sources, there are series of discussions between those in favor and those against, with those in favor of the removal of their Speaker calling on their colleagues to join them in their bid to oust Speaker Tyler.

For those against the removal of the Speaker warned their colleagues that any attempt to put on the floor and call for the impeachment of the Speaker will be quashed through legislative proceedings.

Legislative sources that spoke to our reporter at the Capitol Building, the Home of the Liberian legislators further said the collection of signatures for the removal of the Speaker is based on alleged immoral grounds, particularly the Global Witness which indicated him and others for their alleged taking of bribe to change concession laws in favor of a British company, the Stable Mining.

The House contains 73 members, out of this number 30 have expressed their desire to remove their Speaker at all cost, while the remaining 43 members are in defiant to allow the removal of Speaker Tyler, saying that those who have expressed their support to the Speaker to hold on to power are in majority.

“How possible can that be for the minority to supersede the majority, I can’t wait to such a miracle. If that happen it will be a serious war,” a member of the Speaker’s pro camp speaking to our reporter noted.
