To me, this action on the part of the minister is an insult to the Liberian masses. The average Liberian lives on less than US$1.00 a day.

This action on the part of the Minister of state undermines the "Pro-poor Agenda" News Politics

Election 2015: give these candidates a second look

By Emmanuel Savice If you were born in Liberia in the 80s and are living in Liberia, the only peace you have seen is under the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf led government.

You are the main victim, rubbed of the chance many older Liberians enjoyed peacefully. You are going to have to forgive yourself and act rightly. Past elections have proven many of you not considering…
