Pres. Sirleaf Extends Land Commission Tenure

By Prince Nagbe/LINA

MONROVIA, January 19 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has issued Executive Order No. 66 extending the tenure of the Land Commission by one year which is expected to end January 9, 2016.

An Executive Mansion release issued in Monrovia over the weekend indicates that during the extension period, the Commission shall carry out its mandates, functions and duties as enshrined in the Act that established it in 2009.

The Executive Order further states that during the period of the extension of tenure, the Commission will work along with other government agencies to complete the draft legislation and activities to facilitate the transition of the Commission into a new land agency.

The Land Commission was established by an Act of the National Legislature on August 9, 2009, and charged with the mandate to propose, advocate and coordinate land policy, laws and programs in Liberia.

The Executive has submitted to the Legislature a proposed bill to separate land functions from several ministries and agencies and establish an agency with a focus on land, which will require a transitional period for the Commission and other agencies of government to plan activities that will lead to the establishment of a new land agency. 

The Liberian leader signed the Executive Order No. 66 on January 7, 2015.
