By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, January 12 (LINA)-The Speaker of the House of Representatives, J. Alexander Tyler, has emphasized the need for the passage of bills that were not passed during the 3rd Session of the 53rd National Legislature.

Tyler said the outstanding bills include An Act to ratify the African Convention on the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, the Protocol to the Convention on the prevention and Combating of Terrorism, African Union Convention for the Protection and Assistance of Internally Displaced persons in Africa, An Act to ratify the Convention of the African Energy Commission and An Act to ratify the African Charter of Development, Elections and Governance.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the Speaker made the call 
Monday during programs marking the official opening of the 4th Session of the 53rd National Legislature at the Capitol Building in Monrovia following its annual break.

“Distinguished Colleagues, although we labored long and late many days and passed a number of notable and super bills, many more still remain in committee rooms, craving your timely consideration. We long to see them given you due attention, vetted properly and put on the floor for discussion and probable passage”, he stressed.

It can be recalled that during programs marking the end of the 3rd Session in December 2014, Tyler announced that the House had passed a total of 50 bills including 13 Executive Bills, concurred with eight Executive Bills and six Senate Bills as well as passed 19 of its own introduced bills.

Tyler also disclosed that the Lower House was able to pass three Resolutions.
