LIBERIA: FORMER SPEAKER TYLER RETURNS TO THE LEGISLATURE AS WINNER OF BOMI SENATE RACE

Date:

MONROVIA – National Elections Commission (NEC) chairperson Davidetta Browne-Lansanah, has announced former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alex Tyler, as the winner of the just-ended senatorial election of Bomi County.

Browne-Lansanah, on Monday, named Tyler among several others, who she said have won legislative seats following the 10 October presidential and legislative elections.

According to the NEC chairperson, Tyler accumulated a total of 16,509 votes, accounting for 34.46% out of the total valid votes of 47,907.

Tyler was booted out as Speaker of the House of Reps in 2016 through a vote of no confidence from his colleagues at the time, and he was subsequently defeated in 2017 when he sought re-election as Representative of Bomi County’s first electoral District.

The ex-Speaker returns to the Legislature after six years, having lost his first attempt at becoming a senator in a by-election in 2020, when he ran on the ticket of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), of which his political institution, the Liberian People Democratic Party (LPDP) was at the time a constituent member party.
