MONROVIA-January 12 (LINA)-The Vice President of Liberia, Joseph N. Boakai, has disclosed that 72 legislations are awaiting passage by the Senate during its 4th Session.

The Liberian Vice President who is also President of the Liberian Senate, made the disclosure Monday in his welcome address at the program marking the opening of the 4th Session of the 53rd Liberian Senate at the Capitol Building, during which 13 newly elected senators presented their certificates of election.

According to Boakai, the most challenging of the legislations are the National Youth Act of Liberia 2013, an Act to establish the National Infrastructure Plans, an Act to amend the Telecommunications Act of 2007, the proposed Pension Bill and an Act to establish the Firearms and Ammunition Act of Liberia.

He pointed out that as the Senators step into the 4th Session, the state of affairs requires the best out of them, adding “We cannot afford distractions as the sacred trust placed in each of you must be upheld.”

Vice President Boakai reminded his colleagues about the effects of Ebola on their strength and ability to perform their job.

“We sit in this ceremony today manifesting traces of the residue of fatigue that the fight against Ebola cast on us,”

He added: “Notwithstanding, I come with the optimism that we all come back even reinforced a thousand fold in our commitment and resolve to carry out the people’s mandate as assigned us.”
