"This risk [of postponing the 2022 Census] will extend to calling into question the constitutionality of the elections in 2023, as well as ... the constitutionality of the entire government." -- CummingsThe Alternative National Congress has threatened to sue members of the Senate for infringing on the constitutional rights of Liberia for postponing the conduct of the census in violation of Article 39 of the Constitution. "The Liberian Constitution mandates the conduct of a census every 10 years, which amongst other important reasons, is needed for economic planning. And just before the March deadline, it was announced by LISGIS (Liberia's statistics agency) that they would finally be ready to conduct the census in October 2022. For Cummings, such a dangerous scenario should be avoided as it comes with consequences for Liberia's peace, security, and democracy.
