Bong County District#6 Lawmaker Adam Bill Corneh has emphasized the need for all three branches of government here to collaborate, noting that the gov’t lacks coordination. He made the statement at his office in Salala District during the July 26 Independence Day celebration when he spoke with reporters.
Rep. Corneh: “We are lack of coordination. There are three branches of government (Legislative, Executive and Judiciary) that need to coordinate to make sure to implement the policies of government, but unfortunately for us, we are divided.”
According to him, the lawmakers are all good, but it is only because of policies that make them to differ, because they don’t always agree with one another Representative Corneh noted the division or disagreement is posing more problems for the country. He calls on the Christian and the Muslim communities, including the entire citizenry to pray for unity in Liberia.
He said when there is unity; more development will come to the country than it is now. Rep. Corneh, a member of the ex-ruling National Patriotic Party or NPP of former President Charles Ghankay Taylor, noted that for instance, there are so many political parties opting for the Presidency comes 2017 because there is division among Liberians.
Mr. Taylor is currently serving a 50-year-sentence in Britain after his conviction by the UN-Backed Special Court of Sierra Leone for aiding and abetting disbanded RUF rebels in that country. Liberia’s electoral commission has already registered about 23 political parties for the 2017 polls, and there are reports that more are being organized, awaiting registration. The country’s two last elections saw the participation of nearly two dozen parties.
