Few hours after the suspension of three lawmakers of the Congress for Democratic Change for two years by some executives of the party, the political leader of the party, Senator George Weah has said he knows nothing about any suspension of the party’s lawmakers, describing the decision as ‘Non Avoid’.

Senator Weah speaking via mobile phone on state radio, ELBC said he is not aware of any suspension of any of his party’s lawmaker, and noted that the Chairman of the party, Nathaniel McGill will shortly hold a press conference on the matter.

The three suspended lawmakers all of Montserrado Count were District #9 Representative, Munah Pennoh-Youngblood, District # 8,  Acarous M. Gray and Rep. Julius Berrian of District # 10 for their involvement in the anti-Tyler bid removal.

Observers believed this latest development from the country’s lead opposition political party clearly shows that executive members are divided on matters relating to the wellbeing of the party’s membership.

The reported suspension of the three lawmakers was a result of their support to the removal of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alex Tyler who was indicted by the Global Witness report for bribery from the Stable Mining.
