-In Legislative Performance With A Score Card of ‘A’; IREDD’s Report Shows
The Institute for Research and Democratic Development (IREDD) has released its Consolidated Report 2019 on the Liberian Legislature in general and individual Lawmakers as Nimba County Electoral District seven Representative Roger Domah ranked highest among all the eleven Lawmakers representing Nimba County in the 54th Legislature.
The report covers the full Legislative year 2019 and is intended to inform, educate and stimulate debates across the country on the performance of individual lawmakers and to be used by citizens to ask questions and hold their lawmakers accountable, thereby demanding better representation in fulfillment of the social contract between them and their elected officials.
According to the report, only six out of the 73 Representatives of the 54th Legislature received a score card of ‘A,’ among them Representative Roger Domah of Nimba County Electoral District seven.
The Nimba County lawmaker is also the only Representative from Nimba with that score and one of two Representatives from the Unity Party. Comparatively, he stands tall as the only member of the Nimba Legislative Caucus with this score.
Covering the period January 14, 2019 – October 4, 2019, the report focuses on three areas: representation, lawmaking and oversight – in which lawmakers have the constitutional mandate to execute their formal responsibilities in the interest of their constituents and the Country at large.
“We use this medium to appreciate the People of District seven and to also dedicate this performance to them with a commitment of pushing further harder to bring pride to the people,” the office of Representative Roger Domah is quoted in a release.
The office further said “The report was supplied in limited quality, only one per Lawmaker. Those interested in obtaining copies can visit our Capitol Building Office to do photocopies.”
The office of the lawmaker has meanwhile commended everyone for the achievement and said “This is your honor and your Legislative score card. We commend all our constituents for your support and cooperation. And to our unsung heroes, the Media, we owe you a greater degree of gratitude.”
