Supreme Court To Hear Maryland Senatorial Election

The Supreme Court of Liberia is expected to hear legal arguments today into the motion to dismiss an appeal and its bill of exception filed against Dr. Bhofal Chambers.

The two candidates are Representative Bhofal Chambers of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) and J. Gerbo Brown of the ruling Unity Party of who contested for the senatorial seat in Maryland County, but the National Elections Commission (NEC) declared UP candidate Brown as a winner.

On Monday, July 6, 2015, the Justices entertained short arguments from lawyers representing Representative Chambers and Senator-elect Brown, but the case was adjourned because counsels for the parties never filed their respective briefs which contained their law citations that would enable the court to make final determination.

It can be recalled that following the senatorial election, Representative Chambers filed a petition for a Writ of Prohibition on grounds of election fraud and irregularities.

Some legal luminaries who spoke to our correspondent at the Temple of Justice on Tuesday said the Supreme Court is expected to decide the case within seven days.
