PETITION REQUESTING THE LIBERIAN HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TO COMPEL PRESIDENT GEORGE WEAH TO TAKE A MENTAL TEST TO DETERMINE HIS FITNESS TO LEAD
As Liberian citizens living abroad, we urge that the House of Legislature summon President Weah for a cognitive examination.
We must accept that the president's recent actions in the face of Liberia's macroeconomic issues are very disturbing. President Weah has been singing song after song with little remorse for the Liberian people's impoverished living conditions. We believe that anyone with a hygienic mind would refrain from performing songs for weddings or birthdays while his citizens wallow in perpetual poverty. As a result, we believe his mental capacity to govern the country has been compromised, and we propose that he submit to a cognitive test to assess whether he is still in a positive frame of mind to serve as Liberia's president.
Additionally, we request that the test be conducted in a transparent manner and that the results be made public.
We, the undersigned, petition the Liberian National Legislature to invoke Articles 1 and 63b of the 1986 constitution in order to:
Whereas Article 1 of the 1986 constitution vests the people with complete power, Article 63b of the same document provides for the President's removal if he or she is unable to perform his or her duties owing to physical or mental incapacitation.
Whereas Article 1 of the 1986 constitution vests the people with complete power, Article 63b of the same document provides for the President's removal if he or she is unable to perform his or her duties owing to physical or mental incapacitation. Whereas the President has demonstrated a lack of commitment to addressing pressing national issues affecting our largely unemployed population, he has instead focused his energies on music making and partying, demonstrating his lack of sound mental abilities to lead the state during this period of harsh economic conditions that are gradually invoking our long-running civil wars and political upheaval.
