MONROVIA, January 9 (LINA) – The National Legislature is expected to begin its 4th Working Session on Monday, January 12, in line with Article 32 (a) of the Liberian Constitution.

Article 32 (a) of the Liberian Constitution, among other things, calls for the assembling of the National Legislature in regular session once a year on the second working Monday in January.

Speaking to reporters Friday at the Capitol Building in Monrovia, the acting press director of the House of Representatives indicated that the program will bring together stakeholders and foreign guests.

According to Nelson Garr, legislative members will gather at the main entrance of the Capitol Building for the hoisting of flags of the 15 counties, after which Vice President Joseph Boakai and Speakers Alex Tyler will lead a procession of lawmakers to their respective chambers for the commencement of the 4th session.

The Third Session of the 53rd National Legislature came to an end on December 18, 2014 after  members of both houses unanimously voted to pass the new oil and gas law and also ratified a Lease Agreement for Oil Block 16 exploration.

They also closed to partake in the recent Special Senatorial Elections held on December 20, which saw 12 incumbent senators defeated  while three did not contest, resulting to the election of 13 new senators.
