Former Speaker of the Liberian Parliament and Leader of the delegation to the Community Parliament, Rt. Hon. Edwin Melvin Snowe Junior has said outgoing Speaker Mustapha Cisse Lo’s approach of scolding French President Emmanuel Macron on the floor of the House was wrong.

According to Snow Junior if the Speaker has something against the French President that should be put on the agenda of the just ended second ordinary session in Abuja Nigeria for lawmakers to debate rather than using the ECOWAS Parliament platform to criticize another head of state.

“Parliamentary procedures does not allow him to do that, if you have an issue we can come here to talk about it, if the Speaker or any MP is not satisfied with anything Emmanuel Macron or Presidents George Weah, Buhari or Akufo-Addo has done you put it on the agenda bring it to the floor for us to debate the issue”.

He lamented over the platform used not only to condemn Macron but heads of states in West Africa, “I think it is not right”, he said in an interview with journalists in Abuja Nigeria.

Speaker Mustapha Cisse Lo at the closing of the second ordinary session of ECOWAS Parliament took a swipe at the French President for dictating to Francophone sub-regional leaders and was unhappy that heads of states could not stand up to him.
