Governance Commission Holds Validation Session
The Governance Commission (GC) in collaboration with stakeholders hoists a one-day validation session on the GC’s draft Strategic Plan at the National Elections Commission (NEC) on 9th Street, Sinkor. A press release authorized by acting GC Chair Elizabeth Sele Mulbah said the session is aimed at validating the Governance Commission’s three years (2013-2016) draft strategic plan on governance reforms in Liberia.
“The Draft Strategic Plan presents the choices the commission had made in moving the country’s governance reform agenda forward for the next three years and beyond as it seeks to move to new levels for the achievement of good governance and infrastructure development,” the release said.
It further revealed that today’s working session will bring together members of the Liberian Civil Society Organizations, strategic partners in government, international partners and other nongovernmental organizations to make inputs and to ensure that the plan represents the consensus of all collaborating partners in the governance reform process.
Among key issues flagged in the draft strategic plan are the continuous review of mandates and functions of ministries, agencies and commissions, as well as monitoring of policy implementation for good governance, researching best practices and alternative measures to fast track development and state capacity building strategy opportunities.
The Governance Commission recalled that earlier this year, it undertook a review of the general reform process, conducted researches, considering challenges and outcomes.
