Legislature To Cut Short Recess For Special Session

MONROVIA, November 5 (LINA) - Members of the 53rd National Legislature are expected to return to their respective Chambers for a Special Session, beginning November 8 thru December 8.

This is in keeping with a Proclamation issued by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf requesting the Legislature to assemble to discuss and act upon matters of national concern that require urgent legislative decisions and actions for a period of one month.

Article 32(b) of the Liberian Constitution gives the President of Liberia the authority to extend a regular session of the Legislature or call a special or extraordinary session of the body to discuss and act upon matters of national emergency by the issuance of a Proclamation.

A Foreign Ministry release indicated that pursuant to Article 32(b) of the Liberian Constitution, the Presidential Proclamation states: “I do hereby issue this Proclamation for the 53rd Legislature to return for a Special Session by assembling in each of their respective Chambers in the Capitol Building... to discuss and act upon matters of national concern, for a period one month”.
