Liberia's President Johnson Sirleaf expelled from party [The Morning Call]

The Morning Call

We begin with Liberia, where the country’s ruling Unity party has expelled outgoing president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, after accusing her of meddling in last year’s presidential elections in which its candidate

suffered a bruising defeat. Four other party officials were also expelled. The party said in a statement distributed on Sunday that Johnson Sirleaf and the other members had violated rules, including a

she held inappropriate private meetings with election magistrates before the October 10 vote.
