MIA Wants Halt To New Sub-national Structures

TUBMANBURG, June 29 (LINA) -Internal Affairs Minister Morris Dukuly has called for a temporary halt to the establishment of new local government administrative structures in the country.

Minister Dukuly also wants the members of the National Legislature to stop creating these administrative structures.

He observed that increasing the number of local structures without the necessary economic, social, infrastructure and basic services creates a lot of problems for government.

The Internal Affairs Minister made the call recently at the start a two-day stakeholders’ consultation and sensitization forum on rationalizing local government administrative and traditional structures in Tubmanburg, Bomi County.

The forum, according to an Internal Affairs Ministry press release, was intended
to solicit the views of heads of sub-national administrative structures on the campaign to rationalize local government administrative and traditional structures.

Sub-national administrative structures include City Mayors, District Commissioners a well as Chiefdom, Clan and General Town Chiefs.

The Liberia News Agency quoting statistics from the Ministry said more than 82.3 percent of resources (money) allocated to the sub-national structures are spent on personnel and related services, constraining outlay on goods, services and developmental projects in the counties.
