New House Speaker
After months of controversy and legal wrangling, the Liberian House of Representatives has a new speaker. He is Alex J.Tyler of the Liberia Action Party. He replaced former Speaker Edwin Snowe who resigned earlier this year after he was threatened with removal by his colleagues for allegedly bringing the House in disrepute. Snowe blamed the executive branch for bribing some legislators with $5,000 each to remove him.In reading the papers, Speaker Tyler seems to be trying to project the image of a reconciler and a willing partner with the other branches of government. Anyone know anything about this man?
