The Resident Coordinator of the United Nations in Liberia, Mr. Yacoub El Hillo, has reassured the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the UN’s continued commitment to buttress the peace-building and development efforts of the Liberian Government.

Following the expiry of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) mandate at the end of last month, the UN Headquarters in New York appointed Mr. El Hillo to steer the affairs of the rest of the UN agencies in Liberia, having oversight of all UN activities in the country.

In a meeting with Speaker Bhofal Chambers at the Capitol Building during a courtesy visit recently, Hillo said the UN has several interests with the Liberian Government in achieving good governance and development in the country, according to a release from the Speaker’s office. 

Mr. El Hillo mentioned the Land Rights Act, the upcoming national housing and population census, government’s interest to decriminalize media offenses, and the Constitution review process, among others, as areas the UN looks forward making interventions to any extent possible.

On his part, Speaker Chambers told the top UN official that the House of Representatives equally remains ready to look into several national issues, most of which were earlier indicated by El Hillo.

Speaker Chambers said the House would be considering more consultations and deliberations on major pieces of legislations so as to create a balance result that fits the socio-economic and political standing of the vast majority of the Liberian people.
