MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emmanuel Nuquay, and President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf have held talks since the Speaker’s election few weeks ago.

Speaker Nuquay, along with members of the House of Representatives’ Leadership, met, for the first time, with President Johnson-Sirleaf Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at her Foreign Ministry’s Office in Monrovia.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the meeting centered on enhancing cooperation and collaboration between the House of Representatives and the Executive Branch of the Government.

The release quotes President Johnson-Sirleaf as assuring her personal support and that of the Executive Branch to fostering unity among members of the National Legislature, especially among those of the House of Representatives.

Commenting earlier, Speaker Nuquay thanked President Johnson-Sirleaf for accepting to meet with the Lower House’s leadership and for the level of collaboration between the Executive and the National Legislature.

The release also quotes Speaker Nuquay as re-emphasizing his pledge and determination to unite members of the lower house, following his election to the position.

He later informed the President about a reconciliation effort his leadership has initiated to reunite members of the Lower House.

“My leadership has realized the need to fully partner with other branches of the Liberian Government to complete the country’s development agenda and goals,” Speaker Nuquay added.
