President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has officially opened a one-ay “Special Presidential-Legislative Retreat Agenda, admonishing members of the National Legislature to facilitate the work and agenda of the Liberian people.
“We like now to exchange some views, as to how we can get them done; or how we can clarify some issues as a means of facilitating their work, to be able to conclude them,” President Sirleaf noted. According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf made the statement on Wednesday, June 7, 2017at a Special Presidential-Legislative Retreat held at the Farmington Hotel located at the vicinity of the Robert International Airport in Margibi County. President Sirleaf said the retreat was essential for the leadership of the National Legislature to exchange views on how they can get the work of the Liberian people done in one accord. President Sirleaf said the retreat was meant to see how they can clarify some issues relating to their own legislative work. The Liberian leader said similarly, the Executive Branch of Government was aware that members of the National Legislature were approaching the budget hearing; something she said will consume most of their time. She emphasized that by having the retreat with members of the National Legislature at the meeting it would demonstrate commitment to working the interest of the people. The Liberian leader said some of the things that members of the National Legislature are going to be doing are very much important, and expressed that we will not want them to slip away from memories crucial to the budget hearing processes.
