By Ballah M. Kollie
MONROVIA, December 14 (LINA) - The Association of Judicial Reporters (AJUR) has elected a new corps of offices to steer the affairs of the institution for the next three years.
Members of the association are journalists from various media outlets assigned at the Judicial Branch of government to provide media coverage.
The election was conducted Wednesday in AJUR's office at the Temple of Justice on Capitol Hill in Monrovia.
Speaking after his election, AJUR President-elect Abenego Davis promised to ensure that the image of the association is built with the Press Union of Liberia and all other media regulatory institutions in the country.
Davis sought the collaboration of all members of the association, adding, “I do not want you to leave me alone but to join me in moving this entity to the level we all expect it to be.”
To ensure inclusiveness, he vowed to bring on board all defeated candidates, noting that due to the tediousness of the job, no one person can succeed without the help of the others.
He praised the Election Commission headed by journalist Ballah Kollie of the Liberia News Agency for ably conducting a transparent and peaceful election in the space of one week.
It can be recalled that the commission was on last Wednesday, December 7, commissioned to conduct an election for a new leadership that would steer the affairs of the association.
Others elected include Victoria G. Wesseh, vice president; P. Nas Mulbah, secretary general; Abraham S. Sollie, financial secretary and Parnneh Mallobe, Chaplain.
