Lawmakers Must Exhibit ‘Stronger Discipline’ - PUL

MONROVIA, January 16 (LINA) - The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) has said members of the House of Representatives advocating probity must act “in a way that represents stronger appreciation for discipline and as an example for the younger generation.”

“While we welcome this demand (for probity), the lawmakers must be seen acting and managing their discontent in a way and manner that will represent stronger appreciation for discipline and as an example for the younger generation,” PUL President K. Abdullai Kamara said in a statement issued Thursday in Monrovia.

It said PUL is concerned about evolving situations in the House of Representatives, relevant to calls for the Speaker to come clean about a controversial arrangement involving the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL).

The PUL noted that the drastic changes in the membership of the Liberian Senate “signals popular discontent with the leadership being provided by our legislature, and the going forward must reflect change.”

According to the statement, on this basis, the PUL applauds development that members of the House should be demanding greater probity from its leaders. 

The Union stressed that the way forward in Liberia is more about operating an administration that has the confidence of the Liberian people, and this can happen only when government functionaries take action to correct the wrongs in the society.
