Tyler Extols Liberian Media

first_imgSpeaker J. Alex Tyler has commended the Liberia’s independent media for what he described as “the professional and splendid coverage of the December 20, 2014 Special Senatorial Election in the country.”At a reception marking the official opening of the 4th Session of the 53rd National Legislature yesterday at the Capitol Building in Monrovia, Speaker Tyler thanked the media for its “balanced, credible and on-the-spot reportage in the recently ended election nationwide.”“For the first time in my political life, I witnessed such keen and professional work done by the media. As watchdogs of our democracy, they help keep the process honest by being in every nook and cranny of the Republic during dark and difficult nights, making sure that only genuine results were communicated,” Speaker Tyler declared.The Bomi County Representative asserted, “Without smart-phones or laptops or other sophisticated gadgetry of the Western media and, without any immediate pecuniary dividends deriving to themselves, they labored in rain, in stress-and-strain and many other difficult conditions to ensure that only the truth, and nothing but the truth about the elections got out.”He pledged his unflinching support, with the assistance of his colleagues, to ensure that appropriate budgetary consideration be made to facilitate proper training for the media.According to him, the proposed training, if approved, will be conducted in collaboration with the National Elections Commission (NEC) with the intent to ensure a sustained, continued and robust reportage in the area of elections coverage.“Indeed, you are the watchdog of our democracy, the harbinger of the new Liberia and the heroes in the quest for honesty, integrity and fair play in electoral politics,” he declared.The Unity Party lawmaker praised members of the Electoral Body for conducting a peaceful and credible election across the nation, adding that their role played was vital.He then welcomed the 13 new senators-elect to the Capitol Building, noting; “Please remember your promises made to the people that were not made under threat or duress.”Speaker Tyler reminded his colleagues from the sister chamber about their duties which include, representation, supervision and crafting laws, as imperative and must be kept uppermost in their minds and actions at all times.“For those who lost or were not considered by the people this time, I say, take heart. Better days are yet to come; and I pray that you become a part of Liberia’s golden years, in public or private service, yet to come,” he asserted.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
