Nuquoi Sees LEGISPOL As Partners In Development
By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, October 27 (LINA) - The newly-elected Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emmanuel Nuquay, has urged members of the Legislative Press Pool (LEGISPOL) to see themselves as partners in the development and rebranding process of the image of the lower House.

Nuquay wants mutual coexistence between LEGISPOL and the House aimed at fostering the development agenda of the House as well as mirroring the image of the nation in a manner that will accrue positive dividends for growth.

He made the call Thursday during a meeting with Legislative Reporters at the Capitol Building, the seat of the National Legislature.

LEGISPOL is a body of journalists providing media coverage at the Liberian Legislature.

As one of the biggest auxiliaries of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL), LEGISPOL was established in 1980 and currently has a membership of over 50 journalists covering both Houses of the National Legislature.

It can be recalled that on October 5 Nuquay was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives on white ballot, replacing Bomi County Representative Alex Tyler who recused himself from presiding over that body following a protracted period of leadership crisis.

Nuquay, who represents Margibi County District #5, upon his induction into office, vowed to embark on a robust campaign aimed at unifying the lower House as well as restoring the lost image of that body.

Among other promises, Nuquay also pledged his commitment to working with his colleagues to ensure a massive transition of members of the House in the 2017 General and Presidential Elections from the 53rd to 54th Legislature.

"We want to reconcile the House, we want to do image rebranding, we want to regain the trust and confidence of the Liberian people and we want to properly and effectively coordinate with the Executive branch of government," Nuquay told journalists.

This, he noted, is in the interest of the development of Liberia, and cannot be achieved without an enhanced partnership with the media, adding, "We are up for a genuine partnership and rest assured that we are going to work with you."
