Pres. Sirleaf Emphasizes Governance Norms, Institutions
By Gus D. Jaeploe, LINA

MONROVIA, April 1 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has revealed that while Vision 2030 is a long-term perspective undertaken by government as part of its national reconstruction agenda, it is important to note the aspiration of governance norms and institutions.

According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), President Sirleaf explained on Monday in Gbarnga, Bong County during the opening of the National Constitution Conference that “norms and institutions frayed by structural inequalities, skewed power relationships and conflict.”

She mentioned that one of the measures in the implementation of the National Vision is “our governance Decentralization Policy,” adding: “We have already started, but cannot achieve the desired objectives without appropriate constitutional amendment”.

She informed participants that effort at carrying forward the constitution review part of governance reform has “clearly not moved as fast as we would have liked because it was due to competing priorities and other distractions slowed the process.”

“But we were determined not to let up on this critical matter,” the President noted.

 She indicated that even more recently when the sailing seemed smoother for constitutional review, the nation as a whole was hit with the Ebola virus.

“We praise God that through His grace, the resilience of the Liberian people and decisive action on the part of the world community, we are almost back on course. We are back on course not only in terms of completing the constitution review process, but also carrying to the finish line our re-calibrated Agenda for Transformation”.
