Rep. Pelham Decries Delays To Print Approved Legislations
By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe
MONROVIA, May 27 (LINA) - Montserrado County Representative Munah Pelham has decried delays by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to print approved legislations into Hand Bills.
In a communication addressed to House Speaker, J. Alexander Tyler, dated May 21, 2014 and read in Session on Tuesday, May 27, Pelham said: “I write to bring to the attention of Plenary the deliberate refusal or inability of the authorities of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to speedily print approved legislations into Hand Bill as required by Law”.
According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), Pelham named some of the approved legislations as the Code of Conduct Act and the Children’s Act, which was passed by the 52nd Legislature and signed into law by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
She has, therefore, sought the indulgence of Plenary to invite authorities of the ministry to explain why approved legislations are not printed into Hand Bills in a timely manner.
Following brief deliberations on the issue, Plenary agreed to invite Foreign Minister Augustine Nguafuan and his deputies next week Thursday.
