MONROVIA: President Joseph Nyuma Boakai has called for stronger collaboration among the three branches of the Liberian Government.

“The government will only achieve its goal of meeting the needs of the people if the three branches effectively work together,” the president pointed out.

The Liberian leader added that there is a need to always sit together as duty-bearers to resolve challenges confronting the government.

According to the state-owned Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS), President Boakai called on members of his government not to allow the social media debate on how the government is being run.

He made the statement at the Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf Ministerial Complex recently, following a meeting with heads and members of the National Legislature and the Judiciary.

At the same time, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Cllr. J. Fonati Koffa has described the meeting as a way forward to strengthening coordination among the three branches.

Speaker Koffa said:” The meeting demonstrates President Boakai’s commitment and desire to inclusive government.”

The speaker thanked President Boakai and called for frequent engagements among them.

In remarks, Senate Pro-tempore Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence pledged the Liberian Senate’s commitment to effective coordination among the branches.

The Grand Bassa County Senator noted that the Liberian Government will only work in the interest of the people if the branches of government effectively work together.

For her part, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Liberia, Sie-A- Nyene Youh, said the three branches have agreed to further pursue coordination.

Justice Youh noted that no government can achieve its goal if coordination among its functionaries is not strengthened.

The Chief Justice said: “Discussing cardinal issues about the effective running of the government collectively will positively affect the lives of the people.”

Madam Youh called on her colleagues to ensure that coordination is done in line with the powers and responsibilities of each branch as prescribed by law.
