MONROVIA, January 28 (LINA) -The Liberian Senate has confirmed 22 District Commissioners nominated by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for Sinoe County.
The decision was taken Tuesday, January 27, following recommendation for acceptance of the nominees by the Senate Internal Affairs Committee in its report of January 26 to the plenary.
The report, overwhelmingly welcomed by senators, indicated that the nominees in their confirmation hearings stressed peace and reconciliation in the county which, according to the committee, is a foundation for progress and development.
On March 21, 2014, the Committee began the confirmation hearings at the Capitol Building of 22 commissioners-designate for Sinoe County, pursuant to Article 54 of the Liberian Constitution, which provides that the body consents to presidential nominations.
