The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) has written both Chambers of the Legislature seeking the suspension of the 2020 National Referendum to next year.
According to a PUL Statement issued in Monrovia Wednesday, the Union said public education on the referendum is grossly limited, and far below constitutional requirement.
The PUL is asking Lawmakers to amend the Joint resolution of the Legislature to delay the referendum and do exactly what the constitution of Liberia requires.
Article 92 of the Liberian Constitution requires sensitization on referendum within the period of one year, but awareness for the proposed amendment, has just started in the last twenty four hours two months to the December Elections.
The Special Senatorial Election, and the referendum are tied as one election; something, the PUL sees as overburdening of the capacity of the National Elections Commission to manage the 8th December polls.
Musa Kenneh is the Secretary-General of the Press Union of Liberia.
