Pres. Sirleaf Lauds Legislature For Sustained Collaboration
By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, December 8 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson has commended the National Legislature for its continuous support and the collaboration subsisting between it and the Executive branch of government.

President Sirleaf said as members of the legislature proceed to their constituencies following a month-long extraordinary session, the Executive will enhance the collaboration by providing more information that they can share with their people.

This, according to the Liberian leader, will enable members of the legislature to properly inform their constituents about ongoing development achievements in the country and about the nation's economy.

Speaking Thursday at the start of a retreat to climax the month-long extraordinary session of the 53rd Legislature, in the Joint Chamber of the Capitol Building, President Sirleaf emphasized that the Executive is pleased to share with the Legislature as the nation strives to move ahead with its Agenda for Transformation.

Earlier, House Speaker Emmanuel Nuquay noted that the extraordinary session as requested by President Sirleaf to discuss critical national issues, was intended to ensure that the priorities of the government are achieved.

Nuquay said issues surrounding the economy as well as development issues of Liberia are not only a matter of concern to the Executive, but also to the Legislature.

"We discovered that measures that are intended to ensure that the development priority of our country remains on par are measures that we truly will be interested in discussing with the President," he emphasized.

It can be recalled that the Legislature on November 8, began a one-month extraordinary session to act on matters of national concern upon the request of President  Sirleaf in a proclamation.

Article 32(b) of the Liberian Constitution gives the president the authority to extend a regular session of the Legislature or call a special or extraordinary session of that body to discuss and act upon matters of national emergency or concern by the issuance of a proclamation calling members of the body to duty.
