MONROVIA – The Mano River Union (MRU) has commended the government and people of Liberia for the peaceful atmosphere under which the June 7 protest led by the Council of Patriots was conducted. According to the sub-regional body, the last few weeks have been a testing period for the Weah-led administration. Protestors went without any reported casualty as tens of thousands of Liberians paraded the main route of Capitol Hill. Meanwhile, the Mano River Union has called on stakeholders to put national interest above political interest to ensure economic stability and development for the country. MRU stated that it will continue to encourage the government to uphold genuine concerns in the Constitution in fostering democracy and strengthening the governance system of Liberia.
