Carlor Criticizes Persistent Budget Shortfall

By Ballah Kollie

MONROVIA, April 17 (LINA) - A political activist, David Karn Carlor, has criticized persistent recurrence of “shortfall” in the National Budget.

Carlor said recurring shortfall in the annual budget over the past few years raises questions which, he thinks, financial analysts and experts need to provide sufficient answers to address the problem.

Serving as one of the panelists at the Ministry of Information regular press briefing in Monrovia Thursday, Carlor is left wondering whether Liberia does not have the right financial and economic specialists to save the state from an embarrassment to its financial management reputation.

Carlor, a former Administrator of the People’s Redemption Council, also said major policies of government are often shelved and called on government to ensure that needed policies are implemented to positively impact the lives of the citizens.

The briefing was titled: “What led to the rice riot and how Liberians can avoid the recurrence of such.”

In attendance were a cross-section of Liberians, including ex-minister D. Elwood Dunn, Ambassador Commany B. Wesseh, economist Sam P. Jackson, and political activist John Stewart, among others.
