This comes against the backdrop of reports that infighting and tussling are intensifying over who gets what jobs. Therefore President-elect Weah’s exhortation to outgoing Vice President Joseph Boakai to suggest names for appointment in government may amount to little or nothing. According to reports, some CDC supporters are growing increasingly uneasy over what they see as attempts by President Sirleaf to impose her choice of appointees on President-elect Weah. When contacted, Presidential Press Secretary Jerolimek Piah dismissed any suggestion of the Executive Mansion or rather President Sirleaf having anything to do with appointments in the new government. Meanwhile, President-elect Weah’s declaration of zero tolerance to corruption has been welcomed by many Liberians but with skepticism because according to them similar promises were made before by President Sirleaf but never fulfilled.
